Halloween Safety Tips With all the excitement that Halloween brings, children may forget many of the safety rules you have taught them. Therefore, it is important to carve out some time before your children head out the door on Halloween to remind them of the safety rules that you expect them to follow. Here are a few safety tips to go over with your kids before they head out: Never get into strangers’ cars no matter what the person says. If your child is old enough to go out on Halloween with friends, make sure that he/she has a pre-programmed cell phone with all-important numbers. Children and adults are reminded to put electronic devices down, keep their head up and walk, don’t run, across the street. If your older children are going out without an adult, plan and review the route that is acceptable to you. Agree on a specific time when you want them home. Tell your child to only go to homes with an outside light on, and never enter a home or car for a treat. When crossing the street remind your child not to assume drivers will stop. Motorists may have trouble seeing trick-or-treaters. Just because one car stops does not mean others will. Tell your child not to eat any of their treats until you have checked them. Law enforcement should be notified immediately of any suspicious or unlawful activity. Motorists need to take extra precautions when driving on Halloween night. Here are a few tips to remember: Do not use a cell phone or other electronic device. Even with hands-free devices, a driver’s attention is not totally focused on driving when talking on the phone. Avoid distraction by waiting until you are parked to call, text, or surf. Drive below the posted speed limit in residential areas during trick-or-treating hours. Watch for children darting into the street. Kids can cross the street anywhere, and most young pedestrian deaths happen at spots other than intersections. Do not pass other vehicles that have stopped in the roadway. Children could be crossing the street, or parents may be dropping off children. Enter and exit driveways and alleys carefully. At twilight and later in the evening, watch for children in dark clothing. Drive slowly, anticipate heavy pedestrian traffic, and turn on your headlights earlier in the day to spot children from greater distances. LOOK. LISTEN. LEARN. Be aware. Fire can happen anywhere. Every year, the majority of fire deaths in North America happen at home. Today’s home fires burn faster than ever. In a typical home fire, you may have as little as one to two minutes to escape safely from the time the smoke alarm sounds. It is important that you and your family take the time to prepare so that should a fire happen in your home, you can get out safely. Your family can start by making sure you have a home fire escape plan: • Home fire escape planning and drills are an essential part of fire safety. A home fire escape plan needs to be developed and practiced before a fire strikes. • A home escape plan should include the following: o Two exits from every room in the home – usually a door and a window o Properly installed and working smoke alarms o A meeting place outside, in front of the home, where everyone will meet after they exit o A call to 9-1-1 or the local emergency number from a cell phone or a neighbor’s phone.

  3. September 19, 2018 Roseville Police Department Crime Log Look for an updated version of the RPD Crime Log. You can access the Crime Log by visiting roseville.ca.us/crimelog or by clicking on the graphic above to see the latest crime log. Chain of Survival Award On July 10, Roseville Fire responded to a vehicle accident on Olympus Point at Sierra College Blvd. The driver of the vehicle required extensive extrication and patient care from our crews. While we usually tell you about our department’s role in an incident, this time we are able to tell you about the “Chain of Survival” for one of the patients that was highlighted at an event yesterday. Yesterday, Sierra Sacramento Valley EMS Agency brought together at Sutter Roseville Hospital: - An off duty Police Sergeant from a neighboring City who was on his way home when he came upon the accident. The patient’s car was on fire with the patient trapped inside. The Sergeant was able to extinguish the fire before first responders arrived on scene and provide scene safety. - Roseville 9-1-1 Dispatchers were recognized for their work in professionally fielding 9-1-1 calls from bystanders of the accident and quickly sending the appropriate resources to the scene, - The firefighters who arrived on scene to find one patient who has been able to self-extricate from the vehicle and another patient trapped in a severely damaged car with multiple injuries. The patient was unconscious as firefighters provided life saving medical care inside the vehicle, while rapidly and efficiently extricating him from the wreckage. - Paramedics and EMT’s from AMR who responded to the accident to provide additional medical care and transported the patients to the hospital, - Members of the emergency room team of doctors and nurses who although not able to be at the event were recognized for their tremendous work treating the patient on the evening of the accident, - Members of the ICU team where the patient was transferred after the ER, - Occupational, Physical and Cognitive Therapist that have helped the patient to rehabilitate to where he is today. The “Chain of Survival” begins as soon as an incident occurs and 9-1-1 is initiated. This instance is just one example of how a strong “Chain of Survival” can improve chances of survival and recovery for victims of a traumatic incident. In this instance the patient and his family were able to join in the event and while the patient still has a long road to a full recovery, he has made tremendous progress so far. Now you can freeze your credit for free Last year 148 million Americans had their personal information stolen as part of the Equifax data breach. Victim’s Social Security number, name, address and credit card numbers were compromised. As a result Congress put together legislation to give consumers more control of their credit report. On May 24, President Trump signed the Economic Growth, Regulatory Relief, and Consumer Protection Act which took effect on September 21, 2018. This new law allows all Americans to freeze and unfreeze their credit report for free. If you are concerned about identity theft, you might want to consider a credit freeze. Here’s what new on credit freeze from the Federal Trade Commission (FTC). Free credit freezes What is it? A credit freeze restricts access to your credit file, making it harder for identity thieves to open new accounts in your name. Usually you get a PIN to use each time you want to freeze and unfreeze your account to apply for new credit. What’s new? Prior to September 21, credit freeze in California cost $10 per credit bureau. Now it is free to freeze and unfreeze your credit file. Free child credit freezes What is it? A child credit freeze allows you to freeze a child’s credit file until the child is old enough to use credit. What’s new? Previously, some states did not allow you to freeze a child’s credit file. Now, no matter where you live, you’ll be able to get a free credit freeze for children under age 16. Year-long fraud alerts What is it? A fraud alert will tell any business that runs your credit that they should check with you before opening a new account. What’s new? Previously, fraud alerts lasted 90 days. Now, an initial fraud alert will last for one year. It will still be free, and identity theft victims can still get an extended fraud alert for seven years. Things to consider before freezing your credit report A credit freeze does not: Prevent you from getting your free annual credit report. Keep you from opening a new account, applying for a job, renting an apartment, or buying insurance. However, if you’re doing any of these, you’ll need to lift the freeze temporarily. It’s free to lift the freeze and free to place it again when you’re done accessing your credit. Prevent a thief from making charges to your existing accounts. You still need to monitor all bank, credit card and insurance statements for fraudulent transactions. How to "freeze" your credit report Go to each of the credit bureau websites and locate the “security freeze” link. For Equifax: www.equifax.com/personal/credit-report-services/ For Experian: www.experian.com/freeze For TransUnion: www.transunion.com/credit-freeze If you are considering freezing your own credit, don’t forget you can freeze your child’s credit, too. A child's Social Security number can be used by identity thieves to apply for government benefits, open bank and credit card accounts, apply for a loan or utility service, or rent a place to live. This could potentially go undetected for many years until he/she grows up and starts applying for credit, only to find a big mess. Taking a few minutes now to freeze your credit and your child’s may prevent bigger issues down the road.

Since most fatal fires occur at night, it's essential that every home has working smoke alarms to provide an early warning. Working smoke alarms increase the chance of surviving a home fire by 50 percent. Learn more about smoke alarms, including how to test them and where they should be installed here. Medicare has completed issuing new cards to its California members Medicare has finished issuing new Medicare cards to its members in California. The Social Security number (SSN) based Health Insurance Claim Number (HICN) has been replaced with an 11-character Medicare Beneficiary Identifier (MBI), which is made up of numbers and uppercase letters. Each MBI is randomly generated and the characters do not have any hidden or special meaning. Once you receive your new Medicare card with an MBI, you can use it right away and destroy your old card. Beware of scammers If someone contacts you and says you need to pay for your new Medicare card, it’s a scam! According to Medicare’s website: “Medicare will never call you uninvited and ask you to give us personal or private information to get your new Medicare Number and card. Scam artists may try to get personal information (like your current Medicare Number) by contacting you about your new card. If someone asks you for your information, for money, or threatens to cancel your health benefits if you don’t share your personal information, hang up and call us at 1-800-MEDICARE (1-800-633-4227).” If you have a parent or relative on Medicare, ask them if they have received their new Medicare card. If not, have them contact Medicare for more information at 1-800-MEDICARE.

According to the California DMV each year in California, more than 100 people are killed and hundreds of thousands more are injured in bicycle collisions. Some bicycle related crashes are connected to the bicyclist’s behavior, while others are due to the motorist’s lack of attention. Motorists and bicyclists must follow the rules and share the road. Did you know? - Bicyclists have the same rights and responsibilities as motorists. - It is illegal and unsafe for bicyclists to ride against (or facing) traffic. - Motorists must maintain at least three feet clearance when passing a bicyclist. If you are unable to pass within 3 feet of space, pass at a safe speed to not endanger the bicyclist. - Bicyclists must obey all traffic controls, lights, signs, and signals. It’s the law. Driving a car or bicycle on roadways requires care and courtesy. So, put down your cell phone when driving, and give your full attention to the road. Let’s make sure our youngest citizens are safe when riding their bikes to or from school. California's Day of Preparedness happening Saturday, September 8. Catalytic converter thefts - on the rise Your car has something in it that’s in high demand for thieves. No, it’s not your GPS or your cell phone. The item in questions is underneath your car, takes only seconds to remove, and is required for your car to run properly and legally. It’s your car’s catalytic converter. Roseville has seen an increase in converter thefts in recent months. In July alone, there were 12 thefts. That compares to 14 thefts in all of 2017. The Toyota Tacoma was the most frequently targeted vehicle with 8 of the 12 thefts. Thieves generally target high profile vehicles like trucks or SUVs because the higher ground clearance allows for easier access underneath. However, that doesn’t mean sedans or sports cars are immune to converter theft. Of particular interest to thieves are newer vehicles that have two converters. Why catalytic converters? Thieves are attracted to catalytic converters for a couple of reasons, low risk and high reward. Converters can often be removed in less than two minutes and have no identifiable markings. The precious metals (platinum, rhodium and palladium) contained in the converters can be extracted by recyclers and then sold for $800-$2,000 per ounce. Don’t make your car an easy target for thieves. · Park your car in your garage with the door closed when you are at home (or use motion-detection lights if parking in a driveway). · Park your vehicle in well-populated, well-lit areas. · Park close to a building entrance or to the nearest access road when parking in a public lot. This is due to the increased amount of pedestrian traffic in those areas. · If you have a security system on your car, calibrate it so vibration sets it off. This ensures the alarm activates if a thief tries to saw off the converter. · Consider talking with your mechanic on how to better secure your catalytic converter. · Etch the license plate number on the catalytic converter. · If you do become a victim of catalytic converter theft, file a report with the police department. · Call the police department if you notice suspicious people hanging around vehicles for no apparent reason. · Consider starting a Neighborhood Watch group with your neighbors. By working together, you and your neighbors can look out for each other. Nothing can totally prevent a criminal from stealing your catalytic converter. Thieves select vehicles that are easy targets. However, you can make your vehicle less attractive to thieves by following the tips mentioned above.

The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) is warning consumers to be on the lookout for tech support scams. You might already know the signs of a tech support scam, but do your friends and family? Seniors are often targeted by scammers, so make sure to talk to family members that may be affected. Here’s what they need to know. Companies like Microsoft or Apple don’t call and ask for access to your computer. If you get a call like that, it’s a scam. Real companies also won’t ask for your account passwords. Only scammers do. Tech support scammers try to convince you they’re legitimate. They’ll pretend to know about a problem on your computer. They’ll ask you to open normal files that look alarming to make you think you need help. If you do need computer help, go directly to a person, business, or website you know you can trust. General online searches are risky because they might pull up another scam. A tech support scammer who has access to your computer can install malware. Update your computer’s security software, scan your computer, and delete anything it identifies as a problem. Restart your computer to be sure the changes take effect. Going forward, download security updates as soon as they are available. Most operating systems have a setting to download and install security updates automatically. Use it. And install updates for your other software, including apps. Scammers can be very persuasive. If you or someone you know have fallen victim to a scam make sure to report it to ftc.gov/complaint.

Space is limited and early registration is encouraged. Back-to-School It’s August and that means the start of another school year. With increased traffic around schools, drivers need to take precautions when children are present. Here are a few tips to remembers. When children are present, school zones require you to obey the posted 25mph or slower speed limit, regardless of the day of week or time of day. For example, if it's a Friday night at 10 pm and you are in a school zone when kids are present (maybe a football game or dance just ended), you are still required to adjust your speed to obey the slower school zone speed limit. When a school bus stops with its red lights flashing and/or its stop sign is raised, you must stop from either direction until all kids are safely across the street and the bus lights stop flashing (unless the school bus is stopped on the other side of a multilane or divided highway). Near high school campuses, bear in mind that a higher amount of the motorists are newly licensed teenage drivers who may not have as much driving know-how. Be careful at crosswalks. Now that school is in session it’s time to double check those intersections. Just when you think the coast is clear, a student may appear from nowhere and dart across the street. Make sure to make a full stop at stop signs. This will give you ample time to make sure the crosswalk is clear before proceeding. “...kids can be unpredictable.” We all know that kids can be unpredictable. Be especially careful in the school zone. Make sure that driving has your full attention. Put down that cell phone. There’s nothing more important than the safety of children. Summer Crime Trends Open garage door thefts The warm days of summer are upon us and with it comes an increase in home burglaries that occur from open garage doors. Often times these type of thefts can be prevented with a few precautions taken by homeowners. Close your garage door. It is not uncommon for homeowners to leave their garage door open while they are working outside. This may be convenient, but it is an open invitation to a burglar. Don’t leave your garage door opener in your car. If someone breaks into your car and steals your remote, he/she has an easy way into your home. Check to make sure the garage door is closed before going to bed. Close the garage door all the way down. You may be tempted to crack the door, especially on a hot evening. However, a criminal can easily slip under a partially opened door. Bicycle thefts The peak months for bicycle thefts occur June through August. You can take a few precautions to reduce the chances of becoming a victim. Keep your garage door closed and side door locked. 21% of bicycle thefts occur from garage burglaries. Always bring your bike inside at night. It may be a hassle, but many bikes are stolen at night. 15% of bicycle thefts occur from residential backyards. Write down the serial number of your bicycle. If possible, also take a picture of your bicycle. Both will be helpful if you have to file a stolen bicycle report. Park your bike with other bikes when you lock it up. Use a good-quality lock, so your bike will not be targeted first. Lock up your bikes even inside your garage, and be sure they are locked to some fixed point like a pipe or rafter. Once thieves gain access to your garage your bicycle and other valuables can be taken.
