Park Smart: Week of February 23-March 1


March 5, 2014


A review of stolen vehicle reports in Nashville from Sunday, February 23, through Saturday, March 1, shows that 40% of the automobiles taken (8 of 20) 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.
