Park Smart: Week of July 14-July 20
July 24, 2013
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
A review of stolen vehicle reports in Nashville from Sunday, July 14, through Saturday, July 20, shows that 28.1% of the automobiles taken (nine of 32) 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.
