Park Smart: Week of May 25-31
June 4, 2014
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
A review of stolen vehicle reports in Nashville from Sunday, May 25 through Saturday, May 31, shows that 64% of the automobiles taken (nine of 14) 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.
