Police Chief Maccoun

Police Chief James Maccoun announces his retirement

Roseville Police Chief James Maccoun announced his retirement effective December 31, 2020 after 38 years of law enforcement service in the region.

Chief Maccoun has served as Roseville Police Chief since August 2017 after serving as Assistant Police Chief in Roseville for three years. 

Roseville City Manager Dominick Casey has appointed Roseville Police Captain Troy Bergstrom as Acting Police Chief until a replacement for Chief Maccoun is selected.

 “I’ve worked very closely with Chief Maccoun the entire time he’s been with the Roseville PD, and know firsthand that he leaves big shoes to fill,” said Roseville City Manager Dominick Casey. “I’m grateful for his leadership, his focus on transparency and open communication, and the way he cares for the community in which he was raised.”

Comstock's Status Check Measure B

Comstock's: "Sales tax increase Measure B, passed in 2018, provides vital funds for Roseville"

“We certainly didn’t predict a global pandemic, but we were anticipating another recession,” Roseville City Manager Dominick Casey says. “Without Measure B, candidly, we’d be in a very different position. We’d be staring down the face of a $20 million deficit, and we would not have the general-fund stabilization reserves that we have today.”
