Troy Bergstrom Police Chief

Roseville Police Captain Troy Bergstrom named next Police Chief

Roseville City Manager Dominick Casey announced Monday that Roseville Police Captain Troy Bergstrom will be the City of Roseville’s 17th police chief. Bergstrom has worked in law enforcement for 26 years with the past 21 years at the City of Roseville.

The City conducted extensive community outreach to inform the selection process, from interviews with community leaders to a citywide survey of residents about neighborhood safety and public safety priorities.

“We were extremely impressed with the expertise and credentials of the candidates we interviewed,” Casey said. “Through this highly competitive process, we gained consensus from the panels that Troy Bergstrom brought unique strengths and perspectives that are extremely valuable as he serves in this key role in our community.”

Civic Center wide shot

Give us your perspective about local government

To get a comprehensive and accurate picture of Roseville residents’ perspectives about local government, the City of Roseville is conducting the National Community Survey.

The National Community Survey is conducted in 500 cities in nearly every state in the country. Roseville is participating in order to benchmark and track satisfaction levels and priorities over time in our community.

In January, 3,000 randomly selected Roseville households were invited by mail to participate in the survey. 

Now all Roseville residents have the opportunity to participate in an online version of the survey here.

The results of the survey will be presented at the City Council Strategic Plan workshop in April and shared on the city’s website.

Help protect seniors from scams

While people of all ages can and do fall for scams, scammers often target seniors.  

Scammers know that many seniors have money to spend and are from an older generation that trust others and are polite to strangers.

If you have older relatives or loved ones, they may not be as cautious or savvy when it comes to scams.  

Here are a few ways you can help protect them from getting scammed.
