The Roseville Police Department is accepting applications for a new program designed to inform members of the business community about crime prevention techniques and the crime reporting process.
The city's first police business academy will consist of four sessions beginning Feb. 12 and concluding Feb. 21.
The program is offered free to members of Roseville's business community. It is intended to foster a better exchange of information between businesses and the Police Department and to help businesses develop best crime-prevention practices, according to a department news release.
Police Department staff members will teach participants about the most common crimes against businesses, best hiring practices, how to make the workplace safer, and the crime-reporting and criminal justice processes.
The academy is open to Roseville business owners, managers and lead retail employees.
All sessions are scheduled from 9 to 11:30 a.m. They will be held Feb. 12 at the Maidu Community Center; Feb. 14, at the Roseville Civic Center; Feb. 19, at Raley's Community Event Center; and Feb. 21 at the Roseville Chamber of Commerce.
