Community Service Officers (CSOs)

Community Service Officers (CSOs) are an integral to the department, assisting officers on a daily basis. The CSO program aims to assist law enforcement students in preparing for a police officer career. CSOs are students who are enrolled in a two- or four-year law enforcement or criminal justice program. CSOs work part-time, approximately 20 hours a week. Many of our past CSOs have gone on to become officers with the Roseville Police Department or other law enforcement agencies.
