  1. By: Rob Baquera, Public Information Officer, Roseville Police Department If you are like most Americans you probably have been a recipient of fake emails and calls from scammers. These scammers seem to know a lot of personal information about you. Have you ever wondered how they know so much? According to AARP here are seven ways you may have given away your information: Online contests are gateways to unwanted sales pitches. Not only do marketers collect information like name, age and address, they may learn other things — that you like to travel or are buying a car. Also, they know you believe in luck. That could make you a target. Ever notice when you fill out a warranty card for a toaster or coffee maker that it requests information like how much money you make? It is likely that your information is being sold to others, either legitimately or as part of a scam. Do you fill out surveys rating your stay at a hotel or the service at a restaurant? Selling survey data is big business, and marketing firms and even criminals can learn a lot about you based on travel preferences, what type of home you own, or what car you drive. Do you post updates on Facebook? Scammers turn to social media postings to learn more about those they’ve targeted. So, be prudent. Don’t post personal information, narrow who can see your posts, and avoid posting real-time updates about your whereabouts. Many public records are available at the federal, state, county, and city levels, including census data, property information, criminal records, bankruptcies, and tax liens. Private companies can pull together all this information on you and sell it to anyone. And it’s 100 percent legal. Do you toss out your mail? Shred all mail that has your name, address, account numbers, or other personal data. Obituaries are prime hunting ground for scammers who learn the names of vulnerable widows, widowers, children, or grandchildren. Honor the dead, but keep personal information in obituaries to a minimum. As you can see, there are many ways scammers can get your personal information. You can’t control all the ways your personal information is handled. However, some ways are under your control. So, the next time you fill out a survey, enter an online contest, or post on Facebook remember criminals are online. Protect your personal information and be skeptical if someone calls you claiming they are from your financial institution, credit card company, doctor’s office, etc. When in doubt, hang up the phone and call the company yourself using the contact information on your statement.
  2. Asphalt repairs will temporarily close Baseline Road between Fiddyment Road and Watt Avenue. Work is scheduled 9 p.m. - 6 a.m. on Sunday, September 15 through Friday, September 20. Please choose an alternate route, or follow detour signs and use Walerga Road, PFE Road, and Watt Avenue. See map below. Repairs to this section of roadway are approximately $195,000 and paid for by the General Fund and Gas Tax. Have questions? Call (916) 774-5790 or email Public Works - Street Maintenance.
  3. Yield to Emergency Vehicles You must yield the right-of-way to any police vehicle, fire engine, ambulance, or other emergency vehicle using a siren and red lights. Drive to the right edge of the road and stop until the emergency vehicle(s) have passed. However, never stop in an intersection. If you are in an intersection when you see an emergency vehicle, continue through the intersection and then, drive to the right as soon as it is safe and stop. Emergency vehicles often use the wrong side of the street to continue on their way. They sometimes use a loudspeaker to talk to drivers blocking their path. You must obey any traffic direction, order, or signal given by a traffic or peace officer, or a firefighter even if it conflicts with existing signs, signals, or laws. It is against the law to follow within 300 feet behind any fire engine, police vehicle, ambulance, or other emergency vehicle with a siren or flashing lights (CVC §21706). If you drive for sight-seeing purposes to the scene of a fire, collision, or other disaster, you may be arrested. Casual observers interfere with the essential services of police, firefighter, ambulance crews, or other rescue or emergency personnel.
  4. FFNA Board nominations for 2019-2020 (are now OPEN) We will be electing new board members at the October 8th General Meeting (St John's Episcopal Church at 7 pm). Each NA Board requires a minimum of five (5) volunteers to be an “Active” Neighborhood Association. RCONA provides the insurance for events, can help with partial funding, and use of City and park facilities. One representative from your board must attend monthly RCONA meetings, but people find them very informative and it’s a great place to share and learn from other NAs. You may submit names to the Nominations Committee through September 25th by 5 PM. No nominations can be accepted after the deadline. All you need to do is fill out the form here with the name, address, email address and phone number of your nominee along with a with simple paragraph background biography. If you are submitting someone else’s name, please confirm with them their willingness to serve prior to nominating them. Candidates will be posted on this website by September 25. The Slate of Candidates will be posted here on our site and remain posted until after the elections. Meetings generally last less than two hours are only once per month. There can be up to 10 board members (per our bylaws) -- enough so that the various duties are not onerous on anyone. The FFNA Bylaws require the annual election of board members. Our annual election will take place at the general membership meeting on October 8 (see above). We hope to hear from you! FFNA Nominations Committee

    Bike Safety

    Bike Safety September 2019 As the fall season approaches and hopefully cooler temperatures ahead, many of us will likely resume some of our outdoor activities, like evening walks and bike riding. School recently started up again for the new school year so many kids will be out riding their bikes to and from school. Bicyclists face a variety of hazards: drivers, pedestrians, and road conditions. First and foremost, if you plan on going for a ride, be sure to always inspect your bike first. Ways to inspect your bike: The seat should be at a proper height for comfort and correct leg length to reach the pedal and handlebars. Ensure all parts are securely fastened and working properly. Check tires for any nails or puncture marks and proper pressure. Make sure the bike is equipped with rear, front, pedal, and spoke reflectors. ·he City of Roseville offers a great acronym to help you remember what to check before riding. Remember to make an ABC quick check before riding. Air, Brakes, and Crank-chain-cassette. When you’re riding, do what you can to be seen and are riding safely: Wear bright, neon, or fluorescent colors – reflective strips on clothing are recommended. Use a flashlight attached to the front of the bike or a headlamp. Always wear a helmet – you’re never too old or too young to protect your head from bumps, bruises, or severe injury. -- Vehicle code Section 21212 prohibits riders under the age of 18 from riding or being a passenger on a bike without wearing a helmet meeting specific standards (ANSI or SNELL). To avoid being hit by someone opening their car door, try to ride a car door’s width away from parked cars. When possible, try to make eye contact with a motorist or pedestrian and do not assume they have seen you if you haven’t made eye contact. Most importantly, follow the rules of the road: Use proper hand signals for turning and take extra precaution when approaching an intersection. Similar to walking across a street, make sure to look both ways when crossing a street or entering traffic. ·Make sure to follow traffic laws – for example, riding in the same direction as traffic and stopping at stop signs. Don’t ride the curb, on the sidewalk, or between parked vehicles. Vehicle motorists may not see you in time to avoid a collision. Whether you’re out and about or at home, when you’re not using your bike it is important to keep it properly secured. Make sure to choose the right lock and secure the bike frame and tire to avoid someone stealing either and leaving you with remnants. At home, keep your bike in a secured and locked space: garage, shed, or somewhere out of sight. Unlocked or unsecured bikes are the easiest ones to steal. Remember to lock it, or lose it. If your bike has a serial number, you can register it with the National Bike Registry. This helps law enforcement return lost or stolen bikes, bike parts, or accessories. If you have a concern or ever need to report a stolen bike, be sure to contact Roseville Police Department and submit an online crime report.

  11. July 29, 2019 by Paul Witt Lead Data Analyst, Division of Consumer Response & Operations Have you ever reported an unwanted call to the FTC, whether it’s a robocall (where you hear a recorded message) or call from a live person? If so, thank you. Reporting, I’m sorry to say, won’t end these annoying calls, but it helps the FTC and other law enforcement agencies investigate and bring cases against scammers and businesses that aren’t following the law. In fact, the FTC’s recent actions against robocallers show what your report can do. While you won’t always know how your report made a difference, you can find out more about calls people like you are reporting to the FTC, across the U.S. or in your community. The FTC’s Do Not Call data is now available in an interactive format, which you can find at ftc.gov/exploredata, and is updated quarterly. Among other things, you can find out: the topics of the calls people reported where your state or county ranks in number of calls reported how many calls were robocalls vs. calls from a live person the most-reported topics and trends over time At ftc.gov/exploredata, you’ll also find interactive data on the other types of reports the FTC gets — like scam reports — that we told you about last year. Please keep reporting those calls. You can report unwanted calls at donotcall.gov. The FTC also takes the phone numbers you report and releases them each business day to help companies working on call-blocking solutions. Learn more about unwanted calls at ftc.gov/calls.
  12. The City of Roseville and Westpark Communities is planning a land swap that will move the F-55 park property to a new location on the other side of the water treatment plant (formerly a light industrial zoned property - W-60A). (see map below) The plan is set for approval at the July 17, 2019 City Council Meeting. At this time the plan is understood to be for a sports park (soccer) at the new location (W-60A) and for Low Density Housing (LDR) at the new location F-55.
  13. Roseville schools' growth called 'mind-blowing' WWW.KCRA.COM The rate of growth within the Roseville City School District is moving so fast that school administrators pushed up construction of a new elementary school a full two year just a mile away from another school that opened in 2017.
  14. Neighborhood Watch and Crime Prevention from Rob Baquera - Roseville Police Could this happen in your neighborhood? Upon leaving home one morning a man observed two young men sitting in a car across the street. Although he felt suspicious about the strangers, he went to work. Upon his return that evening he found his home had been burglarized. A woman went to the grocery store one afternoon. She left her sliding door slightly open. “I was only gone 10 minutes,” she stated. When she got home she found more than $1,500 worth of her valuables missing. Several neighbors noticed new residents of a nearby home had many frequent “guests” visiting for short periods of time. There had also been some recent auto and home burglaries in the area. Although they suspected drug dealing, they did not report anything to the police. These are just a few examples of situations that prompted neighbors to establish their own Neighborhood Watch group. What is Neighborhood Watch? It is a program in which the people in one area (neighborhood) agree to watch out for each other and report suspicious activity to the police. Neighborhood Watch signs are prominently posted on street signs warning criminals that the neighborhood has an active and organized Neighborhood Watch group. Report suspicious activity to the police Informed and alert citizens play a key role in keeping neighborhoods safe. Do your part in keeping your community safe by paying attention to your surroundings. If you see something suspicious call the police. Here are some examples of suspicious behavior: Someone going door-to-door asking unusual questions, or looking into houses or car windows. Unusual noises that cannot be explained, like breaking glass, or pounding sounds. Business transactions conducted from a vehicle. (This could be drug or stolen property sales.) Someone removing property from unoccupied homes or closed businesses. Someone loitering in a neighborhood on foot or in a vehicle when there is no apparent purpose or destination. When you call the police be ready to describe specifically what you observed: Who or what you saw; When you saw it; Where it occurred; and Why it’s suspicious. When to call 9-1-1 9-1-1 should be reserved for emergencies. Here are some examples of when to use 9-1-1. a person’s safety is in immediate peril a crime is in progress a serious injury that needs an immediate response any time where immediate response is required; when you cannot be placed on hold The Roseville Police Department’s non-emergency dispatch number is (916) 774-5000 option 1. This number should be used to report incidents that have already occurred, when no immediate danger is present, and suspects are long gone. Join a Neighborhood Watch Group Don’t wait to become a victim. If your street has a Neighborhood Watch group, join in and become an active member. If there is not one in your area, get together with your neighbors and establish one. Roseville residents can get started today by downloading our Neighborhood Watch Starter Guide.
  15. July 1, 2019 by Paul Witt Supervisory Data Analyst, Federal Trade Commission You’ve gotten the calls: from Social Security. Or the IRS. Or Medicare. Or any number of other agencies. Except: as soon as the caller threatens you or demands that you pay them with a gift card or by wiring money, you know. It’s a scam. Even if caller ID tells you otherwise – that’s not the government calling. The FTC’s latest Data Spotlight shows the surge in reports about government imposters. You know about the Social Security Administration (SSA) imposters who claim that your Social Security number has been linked to “criminal activity” and ask you to provide some information or money. (That’s a lie. The real SSA doesn’t work that way.) But those scammers are not alone: people are still telling the FTC that they’re getting calls from – and losing money to – scammers pretending to be the IRS, Medicare, a government grants group, or cops and the FBI. Want to know more? Now there’s – dare we say – an awesome way for you to find out. And even create your own handout. You see the graphic here, but if you go to the dynamic, interactive version of the graphic, you can create a version that focuses on the time period or scam you’re most interested in. Exploring the data can tell you, for example, that this year’s median losses to law enforcement imposters are the highest of all imposter scams (a whopping $3,000), and that 20% of the people who reported those scams told us they lost money. Those calls work because they’re scary. But now you can stay on top of the latest as data is updated every quarter. Or go back 5 years and see how things have changed. And, of course, there are tips on how to spot government imposters scams. So if you want to share the handout you created with a few clicks, you’ll be able to tell people about not just the scope of the problem, but help them know what to do when they get the next call from the – ahem – government.
