[ARCHIVED] Statement from Mayor Gadd and HPD Chief Johnson

UPDATED June 1: While the City of Hopkins is not imposing a curfew for tonight, June 1, residents and community members are encouraged to stay home after 10 p.m.

At this time, there is no credible intelligence that Minneapolis suburbs will see any protesting or rioting this evening. So far it has been proven that fake social media posts are intended to cause fear. 

The Hopkins Police Department is actively working to keep the Hopkins community safe and is taking all necessary precautions to prevent and deter crime.

If you see or hear something suspicious, please call the Hopkins Police Department’s non-emergency number at 952-258-5321. If it is an emergency, call 911.

----------------------------------------------------------

To the residents and community of Hopkins. As we watch the events unfold in the neighboring communities, we understand the fear, anxiety and concerns that each of you may have with these uncertain times. We acknowledge the need to feel safe in our homes and our community.

We want to ensure you that we are taking all of the necessary steps to prevent and deter crime in our community. Our police department and neighboring cities have a mutual aid agreement in place where we assist and supplement each other’s resources in the event we are needed. We have continued to evaluate our resources and we are allocating them based on predetermined planning and intelligence. We have put in place a team of officers and an emergency response team with our consortium cities that can protect this community.

We have been receiving timely intelligence briefs and at this time, we have no specific threats to our community. You may hear and read information on social media which is intended to cause fear and disruption. The majority of this information is simply not true.

We will continue to do everything to keep our community safe. While we have not officially set a curfew, we want to emphasize the importance of staying home this evening as the situation is turbulent and rapidly unfolding. For your safety, we strongly recommend that you stay home after 8 p.m.
