VIDEO: Hopkins Swears in New Reserve Officer

Reserve Officer Chris Nelson took the oath of office at Tuesday's council meeting.

Hopkins resident Chris Nelson became the latest person to join the police reserves on Tuesday.

Nelson, a 1991 Hopkins High School grad, took the oath of office at Tuesday’s City Council meeting.

Police reserves are volunteers who help Hopkins police with community events, training exercises, traffic control and more. Nelson’s day job, for example, is editorial publicity director at Minnetonka advertising and marketing firm Longren & Parks.

This year, reserves have donated close to 4,000 donated hours—nearly the equivalent of two fulltime employees.
