Aspects of law enforcement and the issues that police officers face
The Citizen Police Academy was created to promote an understanding of the Roseville Police Department and its policies and procedures. The Academy will provide information about many aspects of law enforcement and the issues that police officers face on a daily basis, as well as how other divisions within the department work together to help our community be safer.
The next academy runs for two weeks:
