Project ALERT is an alcohol, tobacco and drug prevention program taught to 5th grade students in the Hopkins School District, with three booster lessons for 6th grade. The drug prevention program is a collaborative effort by the Hopkins Police Services Liaison and the elementary school counselors

School Safety Patrol Program

The Hopkins Police Services Liaison serves as the coordinator for the community elementary schools' AAA School Safety Patrol Program. With the help of generous donations from the Hopkins American Legion, each year several elementary students attend a week-long safety camp at Legionville Camp near Brainerd. While at camp, they learn safety skills that will help them in their role as safety patrol members.

In appreciation for their hard work and dedication, participants of the safety program are treated to a day at The Park At MOA™ at Mall of America, courtesy of the Suburban Law Enforcement Association.
