Park Smart: Week of September 15-September 21

9/25/2013

September 25, 2013

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

A review of stolen vehicle reports in Nashville from Sunday, September 15, through Saturday, September 21, shows that 29.4% of the automobiles taken (five of 17) 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.
