Welcome to the The Rocklin Alert Network, a new and high-tech way to stay connected and informed through opt-in e-mail, text messaging and web published public safety alerts. Subscribers can sign up to receive alerts from the Police Department via email or as a text message to a cell phone. They can also opt to receive “neighborhood-only” or citywide alerts, as well as surrounding city alerts that are on the CitizenObserver alert system. Through this site, Rocklin PD will provide information to help maintain and improve community safety.

The other component of the new Rocklin Alert Network is the tip411 Program, which will enable the public to submit anonymous tips to the Police Department via text messaging. While this is not a replacement for dialing 911 in an emergency, this technology will allow interested persons to communicate potentially helpful information to Rocklin police officers. The tipster simply texts ROCKLIN and their message/tip to 847411, (or tip411).
When police receive the message, they can respond to the tipster who will continue to remain anonymous. The Rocklin Police Department has no way to access the identity of the individual reporting the information.
