INVESTIGATIONS

Det. Ganley worked alongside the FBI on a string of armed bank robberies in 2017 in Roseville.

Volunteers

VOLUNTEERS


Roseville Police Department utilizes the assistance of volunteers in our everyday course of work.  The Reserve Unit are uniformed civilians who drive a marked squad and assist officers by directing traffic when needed, transporting prisoners, etc. The Roseville Police Citizen Park Patrol enlists the help of several residents to patrol our parks daily helping to deter crime and pass out information to park visitors.  We also have a steady stream of student interns who are helping us out by running errands for investigations, assisting with paperwork for administration, analyzing statistical data and so much more. The 2016 value of volunteer time in MN is $26.40 per hour. That is a value of $290 this month.

*Reserves and Park Patrol listed are actual hours. Interns hours are estimated.
