Zac: We have a shopping mall that is very large relative to Roseville's permanent population. These numbers don't mean much without context. How many of those thefts were shoplifting, and specifically, how many were at Rosedale? It should be pretty easy to figure that out based on the address (1595 Hwy 36 or whatever the placeholder address is). At first glance, you might think we have a big theft problem in Roseville, but that is probably not the case. Please investigate further and give us a clearer picture. Thanks.

the burglary number seems very high, which is why i wish the roseville police dept. would spend more time patroling neighborhoods, versus trying to collect fines and forfeitures from traffic violations. i feel our roads are very safe - it is extremely rare for someone to die in a traffic collision in roseville. so, instead of spending the majority of their time monitoring traffic and stopping drivers for silly reasons, our officers should be constantly patrolling ALL roseville neighborhoods.
