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