Do you know a Person @ Risk?
The Hopkinton Police Department offers a Person At Risk program to members of the Hopkinton community who have a condition such as Autism, Alzheimer's, or other memory-related issues that place them at risk of wandering from the safety of their caregivers or acting out physically at home, school, or other community location.
Caregivers or family members of persons at risk can provide identifying information including a photo for these individuals using the Persons at Risk information form (see link to PDF form below). Anything that could be helpful in finding and/or deescalating a situation with a person at risk should be included in the form.
The HPD dispatcher has access to the Persons at Risk form if a HPD officer(s) has to respond to an incident with a person at risk.
To register a person at risk with this program, bring a completed form and recent picture to the station and return it to Officer Steve Buckley. You can also complete the form online using the Google Document link below.
The Hopkinton Police Department has identified property crime as a high priority in our community. In response the Police Department has announced a new campaign to prevent crime. The Like it - Lock It campaign asks citizens to take an active role in protecting their property. Most items stolen from vehicles and in the school or workplace are left unattended and unsecured. We are asking everyone to partner with us to prevent property crimes.

Safe Exchange Zone
Online purchases and swaps are a popular way to shop and exchange goods. In recognition of some safety concerns Chief Lee has established a Safe Exchange Zone in the front parking lot to meet and exchange these items. The police station property is covered by 24 hour surveillance and the station is staffed 24 hours a day as well.
Is Your House
If you will be away from your

house check request. When shift
conditions allow officers will walk around your home and inspect the
exterior to ensure that it is secure.
