Cops N Kids

Building Relationships with Kids

The Hopkins Police Department understands the importance of establishing relationships within the community. The department also recognizes the importance of reaching out to youth in our community and creating positive social interactions with law enforcement in an effort to prevent and deter crime.

Our Partnership

To help form these relationships, the Hopkins Police Department partners with local businesses on different events throughout the year, such as Cops N Kids Fishing in June and Cops N Kids Shopping in December.

Cops N Kids Shopping

Do you know a Hopkins student in grades 6-9 who would benefit from police mentorship? The Hopkins Police Department is now accepting nominations for Cops N Kids Shopping coming up on Tuesday, December 7.

Nominated students will join Hopkins police officers after school to shop at Target for gifts for their families. Once shopping is done, they will travel to the Hopkins Fire Station to wrap the gifts with help from Hopkins JCI members and enjoy dinner with the Hopkins police and firefighters.  

Submit a nomination

Nominations are due by Monday, November 29.
