Park Smart: Week of July 7-July 13
July 17, 2013
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
A review of stolen vehicle reports in Nashville from Sunday, July 7, through Saturday, July 13, shows that 39.1% of the automobiles taken (nine of 23) 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.
