Park Smart: Week of June 2-June 8

6/12/2013

June 12, 2013

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

          
A review of stolen vehicle reports in Nashville from Sunday, June 2nd, through Saturday, June 8th, shows that 25% of the automobiles taken (nine of 36) 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.
