The gathering will opened with a panel of Roseville residents sharing their reaction to the shooting. Police Chief Rick Mathwig then present information about Roseville’s police policies before attendees were invited to discuss their reactions during a small group breakout session.

Discussion 3: The Intersection Between Community Aspirations and Immigration


What does it mean for a community to be Safe & Law Abiding as well as Welcoming, Inclusive, & Respectful? How does our changing demographics that includes immigrants, refugees and undocumented immigrants affect our community?

Roseville hosted two community conversations on community, policing and race. From the conversations, participants asked about the impacts national policies have on Roseville’s ability to provide a safe and welcoming community for all residents and visitors to the city, regardless of immigration status.
