  5. By Rob Baquera, Public Information Officer, Roseville Police Department Secure Your Paperwork Opt for electronic statements. Thieves can steal bank account statements, bills and other documents from your home mailbox. Instead, says Paige Hanson, chief of identity education at Norton LifeLock, choose electronic statements that get delivered via email or directly into your online banking account. Bonus: You may be able to avoid paper statement fees or get billing discounts by going electronic. Keep a shredder handy. Shred all bills and financial documents to keep thieves from fishing them out of your trash. Hanson recommends using a cross-cut shredder, which cuts the paper into smaller pieces than a strip-cut shredder. Keep your personal information safe Freeze your credit report. This keeps creditors and others from “running credit” on you, protecting you from scammers who try to use your information to set up phony accounts. It’s now free, but you need to contact three credit reporting bureaus: Equifax, Experian and Transunion. You can always unfreeze it temporarily to allow legitimate access to your credit, such as when you apply for a loan. Stop entering sweepstakes. You may be enticed by the vacation prize at the mall kiosk, but before you enter personal details on the form, ask, “What are you going to do with it?” advises Amy Nofziger, director of AARP’s Fraud Watch Network helpline. Stop giving out your Social Security number. Some businesses, such as banks, credit agencies and government agencies, legitimately need your Social Security number for reporting purposes. But that’s about it. “I often hear this question, ‘If my doctor doesn’t need my SSN, why are they asking for it?’ You can opt to leave the line blank on that form. When it comes to fraud, vigilance is our number one weapon. You have the power to protect yourself and your loved ones from scams. Placer County Fraud Hotline: 916-645-SCAM (7226)

Thanksgiving safety tips The holidays can be a joyous but hectic time, especially when there’s a lot of activity and people at home. By following a few simple safety tips, you can enjoy time with your loved ones and keep yourself and your family safer from fire. Stay in the kitchen when you are cooking on the stove top so you can keep an eye on the food. Stay in the home when cooking your turkey, and check on it frequently. Keep children away from the stove. The stove will be hot and kids should stay three feet away. Make sure kids stay away from hot food and liquids. The steam or splash from vegetables, gravy or coffee could cause serious burns. Keep knives out of the reach of children. Be sure electric cords from an electric knife, coffee maker, plate warmer or mixer are not dangling off the counter within easy reach of a child. Keep matches and utility lighters out of the reach of children — up high in a locked cabinet. Never leave children alone in room with a lit candle. Keep the floor clear so you don’t trip over kids, toys, pocketbooks or bags. Make sure your smoke alarms are working. Test them by pushing the test button. Are you ready for the holiday shopping season? Black Friday is often seen as the official beginning of the holiday shopping season.

  15. Safety First Holiday Shopping Tips The fall season is in full swing and holiday activities are getting underway. This time of year can be the most festive time, but safety and security measures are still important. Many of us will be walking the malls and shopping in stores, or ordering online to get the best deals. Some simple tips to stay safe while you are out and about include: Avoid distracted walking; be aware of your surroundings and whatever items you may be carrying Use purses that zip or latch as this makes it more difficult for someone to slip their hand in and your wallet out If carrying a bag, try to keep it in front of you, close to your body, or under your arm If possible, leave your purse or valuables at home – take only what you need Do not carry any more cash or credit cards than needed – more often than not, one card is enough Walk in busy, well-lit areas, or go shopping in groups Put shopping bags in your trunk before you park, be aware of prying eyes Online shopping offers a convenient way to shop and avoid the crowds; however, it may make you vulnerable to identity theft or porch pirates. Some simple tips to stay safe while shopping from home: Try to shop from reputable websites or sites you already trust and make sure you recognize the payment website (confirm that you have not been diverted to another website to enter your payment information) Pay using verified payment websites (sites that start with https://) Create strong passwords for all your online accounts – avoid passwords like: Password1 or Roseville123 Avoid clicking on suspicious or odd emails – always verify the sender is from a recognized email address If you are going to be away from home for several days, consider placing a hold on your U.S. mail Request delivery companies hide packages, if possible, to avoid porch package thefts Regularly check your bank or credit card statements to ensure there are no unauthorized transactions Being aware and proactive while shopping can help ensure that you have a wonderful and memorable holiday season. If you believe you have unauthorized bank or credit card charges contact the financial institution immediately. If your mail or packages are stolen, contact the seller and file a crime report on the Roseville Police Department’s website.

    Trunk or Treat
  26. Phase 1 construction anticipated in 2020 The first phase of Washington Boulevard/Andora Widening Project construction is projected to begin in 2020. The California Transportation Commission unanimously approved updates to phase 1 plans for the project. Valuable public feedback was shared with the commission at its October meeting. Phase 1 Improvements include: Installing a new traffic signal at the intersection of Washington Boulevard and Kaseberg Drive; Widening Washington Boulevard from two to four lanes between Sawtell Road and Kaseberg Drive, as well as between Diamond Oaks Road and Pleasant Grove Boulevard; Improving signalized intersections along Washington Boulevard; Constructing a new multi-use trail long the east side of Washington Boulevard, from Pleasant Grove Boulevard to All America City Boulevard; and Enhancing the current bicycle and pedestrian railroad under-crossing. Certification of the Final Environmental Impact Report will be considered at the Wednesday, October 23 City Council meeting. Phase 1 work is fully funded and will be paid for with a $2.2 million California Transportation Commission Active Transportation grant, $1.1 million in state Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality program funds, and $2 million in local funding from the City of Roseville. Future phase 2 improvements The total cost of phase 2 requires approximately $30 million. A significant portion of this amount includes building a temporary shoofly to allow continued rail operations during construction of a new wider railroad bridge. Despite applying for a variety of competitive state and federal funds, the necessary funding is not yet available for phase 2. Planned phase 2 improvements include: Widening Washington Boulevard from two to four lanes, between Kaseberg Drive and Diamond Oaks Road; and Replacing the existing Union Pacific Railroad Andora bridge with a new wider bridge.
