The Regional Crime and Gang Impact Team was created to reduce crime throughout Placer County by collectively targeting known offenders and gangs. In previous months, the team targeted offenders in Lincoln and Auburn. Yesterday’s operation targeted known offenders in the City of Roseville.
From 12:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. yesterday, four multi-agency teams of officers conducted numerous probation check and parole searches, and served arrest warrants throughout Roseville. A total of 34 adults and one juvenile were arrested. Eight were arrested for violating the terms of their parole or probation; eleven were arrested on warrants or violations of court orders; eight were arrested on new drug charges; one was arrested for a new weapons charge; and seven were arrested for a combination of warrant charges, parole or probation violations, and new drug or weapons charges. The teams also contacted seven sex registrants to ensure they were in compliance with their registration requirements.
The Roseville Police Department, in conjunction with our partners in the Placer County Regional Crime and Gang Impact Team, will continue with future operations of this kind both in Roseville and in surrounding communities. The goal of the operations is to reduce criminal behavior and to continue to maintain a high level of safety and quality of life in Placer County.
