We Are Roseville - September 21, 2021


September 21, 2021

Outage notifications

Power outage notifications sent to you by text

Roseville Electric has initiated a new process where customers will be automatically opted in for important text messages in regards to outage and electric related information.

As a part of this new feature, customers with a mobile number associated with their utility billing account were opted in for outage-related text messages and Peak Alert notifications starting today.

To manage your text notification account, including opting out of the service or adding a different mobile number, please visit roseville.ca.us/outages.

Police body cameras

Roseville Police officers begin using body worn cameras

In another positive step in strengthening our relationship with those we serve; the City of Roseville Police Department has implemented a new body worn camera program. 

In July 2021, the Roseville City Council approved a five-year contract for just over $750,000 with LensLock, a company specializing in body camera programs. The contract will provide Roseville PD with 150 body cameras, enough for every Roseville Police officer.
