Front Counter

The Front Counter of the Santa Rosa Police Department is open to the public Monday – Friday from 8:00am – 6:00pm and on Saturdays from 9:00am – 4:00pm. The police technicians who staff the front counter are civilian employees who assist the public by:

  • Answering the general police department phone lines

  • Write/accept police reports with no suspect information

  • Sign off “fix-it” tickets for mechanical violations

A Med-Safe bin is located in the lobby, available to residents of Santa Rosa to dispose of prescription medications only. We ask that you remove any medications from their pill bottles and condense any medications into a plastic bag before disposing them in the bin due to space constraints in the bin itself.

Any Sharps needles needing to be disposed of can be done by either taking to the local dump (located at 500 Mecham Rd, Petaluma, CA 94952) or by scheduling an appointment for drop-off by contacting Stericycle.
