Park Smart: Week of August 25-August 31
September 4, 2013
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
A review of stolen vehicle reports in Nashville from Sunday, August 25, through Saturday, August 31, shows that 40.7% of the automobiles taken (eleven of 27) were easy targets because the keys were left inside or made available to thieves.
The police department’s continuing PARK SMART campaign strongly urges citizens to lock their automobile doors, secure any valuables and REMOVE THE KEYS.
Officers also urge citizens to SHOP SMART by not leaving purses or other valuables unattended in shopping carts or in plain view in vehicles, even for a very short time. An unattended purse is an easy target for a thief.
