  1. By: Rob Baquera, Roseville Police Department, Public Information Officer Summer has arrived. School has ended and the summer activities have begun. As kids are home for summer and vacation plans are being made, there are some safety issues to be considered. Here are simple steps you can take to protect your home if you are out and about, on a getaway weekend, or on an extended vacation. Use a home monitoring system, either one monitored by a private company or security cameras linked up to an app that you can monitor yourself. Have a friend or neighbor check on your home while you are gone. Lock-up your home, and close your blinds to avoid prying eyes. An outdoor motion sensor light can be a simple and affordable deterrent. Keep up regular maintenance (e.g., landscaper or pool cleaner). Thieves tend to notice when something is off or irregular. Set-up a mail hold at the post office. Also, your newspaper carrier should be able to stop deliveries while you’re gone. Newspapers in your driveway are often a dead giveaway that someone isn’t home. Other safety considerations are not leaving children and pets in vehicles in the summer heat. A quick stop at the store can be a dangerous hazard for young children or pets. It is illegal to leave a child 6 years old or younger unattended in a motor vehicle. However, the child may be left under the supervision of a person 12 years old or older (CVC §15620). After sitting in the sun, even if a window is slightly opened, the temperature can rise rapidly inside a parked vehicle. Dehydration, heat stroke, and death can result from overexposure to the heat. California Penal Code §597.7 prohibits leaving or confining an animal in any unattended motor vehicle under conditions that endanger the health or well-being of an animal due to heat. A simple habit to practice year-round is to always check the front and backseats when you exit your vehicle. Even the best parent or caretaker may overlook a quiet or sleeping baby in the car, but checking your vehicle before walking away can ensure that no child is left unattended. Look before you lock and leave. If you see a young child alone in a vehicle on a hot day, call 911 immediately. If the child is in distress, try to get the child out as quickly as possible and work to cool the child quickly while waiting for first responders to arrive. By taking steps to protect your home and being cautious when children or pets are in your car, you can sit back and enjoy all that summertime offers.

  3. Criminals don’t take a summer vacation. Spring is in full swing and summer is right around the corner. Now is the time to start preparing for fun summer activities. The Roseville Police Department also encourages you to take a few minutes to consider your summer safety plan. Help keep crooks out of your house, your property secure, your kids safe online, and your vehicle from becoming a target. By taking preventative measures now to safeguard your home and family, you can relax and have peace of mind all summer long. Here are some tips from the National Crime Prevention Council. Home Safety Tips Be aware of what’s happening in the neighborhood. Stay connected via Neighborhood Watch or a “Nextdoor” group. Lock your doors, including the garage door. Unlocked doors are open invitations to intruders. Ask a trusted family member, friend, or neighbor to keep a watchful eye on your home and pick-up any packages or mail; or have your mail held at the local post office until your return. Put lights on timers to give the impression that someone is home. Don’t post on social media that you are leaving town, and wait to post photos after you return from your trip. Tips for Parents · During a family outing make a backup plan in case the group gets separated. Consider having a scheduled meeting place and time. If your children will be home alone for a significant amount of time, have them check in with you if they plan to leave the house and when they arrive back home. Monitor internet and social media activity to establish if your children are visiting appropriate sites and following guidelines. Car Safety Tips Always lock your doors and roll up your windows when you leave your car. Do not leave valuables in the car. If you must leave prized possessions in your vehicle keep them out of sight or hidden in the trunk. These prevention tips are simple steps to avoid summertime crime.

  11. By: Rob Baquera, Roseville Police Department, Public Information Officer A ringing cell phone, fighting kids, or a spilling coffee cup, no one is immune from distractions. The average car weighs around 5000 pounds. When you mix distractions and a vehicle traveling down the road, you get distracted driving. Distracted driving can occur when something diverts your attention from the task of safe and attentive driving. A study by the U.S. Department of Transportation estimates between 3000 to 4000 people are killed annually by distracted driving. According to the Center for Disease Control – Injury Center, there are three primary types of distractions: Mental or cognitive – when a driver’s mind is focused on something besides driving. These can include talking to another passenger, thinking about something that is upsetting, road rage, daydreaming, or being under the influence of drugs and/or alcohol. Visual – when a driver looks at something other than what is ahead on the road. These can include looking for items on the floor of the car, checking and adjusting your GPS, changing the radio station, adjusting your temperature controls, taking in the view, or doing your makeup. Manual – when one or both hands are taken off the wheel. These can include eating and drinking, adjusting your child's seatbelt, smoking, searching through your purse or wallet, or turning knobs in your car. There are things you can do to ensure you are driving as safely as possible. Here are some simple ways to minimize driving distractions: Keep your eyes on the road. Pull over to read directions. Put your phone in “Do Not Disturb” mode. Keep your phone out of reach. Make all adjustments before driving. Don’t reach for items while driving. Avoid phone calls, even hands-free. Stay focused on the road. Keep your emotions in check. Distracted driving is a major cause of car-related injuries. Complacency can be a huge factor. Many accidents happen near or around your home due to your familiarity with the surroundings. Do your best to stay focused on the task of driving safely and you will be able to respond more quickly, be better positioned to think clearly when needing to respond, and likely spot a distraction before it becomes a problem. ************************************************************************************************************* Save the Date Drug Take Back Day Saturday, April 27, 2019 10:00 am -2:00 pm Locations: Maidu Community Center - 1550 Maidu Drive Roseville High School - 1 Tiger Way Sun City Roseville - 7050 Del Web Blvd.
