Rocklin Police Department – 4080 Rocklin Rd, Rocklin CA 95677
The best of the best. Taking names and giving tickets. I couldn’t love a police department more then the best of them all and that’s ROCKLIN! Every time I call they resolve the issue. They truly know how to get problems resolved, they are not push overs, they truly keep this city safe! Hire more of them! Give them all raises! -Lifelong Rocklin Resident.
On October 11th, 2018, I was returning from dropping my kids to school at 7:50am, when a Rocklin Police officer D.GROFF on a motorcycle that was sitting on Westmeath, pulled me over for not stopping at a Stop sign in my neighborhood at Westmeath and Lookout Pass Way.
I parked on my driveway, the officer D.GROFF asked for my Drivers License, I told the officer D GROFF it was in my house, because I went to drop my kids to school, and left it at home, usually my purse is always in my car, I was in a rush that morning. He wrote me up for a ticket for not having my drivers license on me, after he checked my insurance and registration, and looked up my drivers license he asked for my RIGHT THUMB PRINT?. AT THIS POINT HE STILL HASN’T ISSUED ME A TICKET, I STILL DON’T UNDERSTAND THAT? He then ran and followed me into my home and physically assaulted me, entered my home without my permission, without any cause, Officer D.Groff violated me, he used excessive force, grabbed my arm, I have pain and soreness from this… the officers (D.GROFF) glove came off as he was attacking me, with the amount of force he used on me, HE THEN DRAGGED ME AND pushed me out from inside of my home AND INTO MY GARAGE, WHICH IS WHERE HE STOOD with me a few feet away, INSIDE MY GARAGE, He never had a reason to do this to me, HIS CONDUCT of manhandling me was a disgusting display of law enforcement behavior. While this was happening my husband was on the phone and heard the whole altercation as it was unfolding, this is complete abuse of authority and DUE process. My 20 yr daughter was home and witnessed the assault also.
My husband then called Rocklin PD, that I was being harassed, a Sergeant was sent out, ERIC DOLLAR. I spoke with the sergeant asking him about the misconduct of his officer, the sergeant ERIC DOLLAR said that there’s no law against an officer having a full conversation about my PERSONAL information with strangers on the street who were asking what was going on, because its public information already, he had nothing to say about the conduct of his officer assaulting me either, so any random person driving by deciding to be nosy can be told about my citation by the ticketing law officer? My personal information given freely out to people I don’t even know??. I can be assaulted in my own home for no reason!?? This is total lack of professionalism on both officer Dan Groff part and Sergeant ERIC DOLLAR.
I witnessed D.GROFF speaking with someone because I was standing right behind D.GROFF on my driveway, a neighbor that I don’t know, that lives up the street drove up as this is all happening in a 2 door dark silver Honda Accord or Civic, D.GROFF then proceeded to tell this same stranger how I was a horrible driver and shared my personal information with him, I don’t even know this person, he also shared the information about why I was pulled over, that neighbor then proceeded to stay parked in front of my house and stared at me directly for a while taunting me, harassing me, trying to intimidate me, WHILE D.GROFF STOOD NEXT TO THE CAR doing nothing which i felt was total neglect of his duty. The two seemed to know each other.
I feel traumatized by both these people and their actions, I don’t feel safe anymore in my own home and neighborhood. I feel I was singled out for harassment, and threats because I’m a different race, and one of the few colored people who live here in Rocklin. I was still underdressed when this all happened in the morning, I had no jacket on, D.GROFF then finally writes the ticket AND I SIGNED IT, then HE WOULDN’T HAND ME MY YELLOW COPY, HE WAS HOLDING ME HOSTAGE ON MY OWN PROPERTY outside. I ASKED HIM REPEATEDLY WHY WAS HE NOT GIVING ME my COPY, HE KEPT IGNORING ME, what reason did he have to conduct himself in such a unprofessional manner,? This sort of behavior is scary, unpredictable, and unstable of a law enforcement officer.
I had to call them today. Family member was becoming a danger to herself and others. They were patient kind and understanding.
Gently they asked questions and got her safely into an ambulance. They could have forced her but they were compassionate instead.
I’m so impressed and thankful. As a society in our worst moments we call. They come.
My hopes and payers are for the support and safety of our police around the county.
Guardians of our Castle is the way we were welcomed by Chief Lawrence and what a great experience it has been as a Volunteer. The Police family has welcomed us with open arms and made this a very educational and learning experience. We live in a great town.
Prayers for our awesome police department! Go Blue! PRAYERS FOR YOUR SAFETY.
