The Roseville Police Department Multicultural Advisory Committee (MAC) was established in the summer of 2020 to help strengthen community outreach and foster honest, ongoing and focused conversations between members of the community, police officers and other city staff in Roseville.
The goal of the MAC is to bring community representatives together to discuss community-policing concerns, strategize ways for Roseville Police to best engage with the community, and share information about police policies and procedures.
The MAC currently consists of 15 diverse members of the Roseville Community who meet on a monthly basis. By working closely with the MAC, Roseville Police anticipate strengthening community relationships and improving trust and legitimacy in policing while working to make Roseville a safe and livable community for all residents and visitors.
Residents are encouraged to contact the Roseville Police Department to learn more about the committee and its efforts. Roseville Chief of Police Erika Scheider is facilitating the program. Residents may contact Scheider at firstname.lastname@example.org or 651-792-7213.
