The crime rate in Roseland is relatively high. Roseland is known as an active gang territory by the Santa Rosa Police Department, Sonoma County Sheriff and California Highway Patrol, all of whom share Roseland as a jurisdiction. A special task force was created in order to help prevent gang-related crimes. Local authorities are hoping for a drop in crime rate with more patrols and quicker responses to calls by local law enforcements.
