Park Smart: Week of November 17-November 23

11/26/2013

November 26, 2013

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

A review of stolen vehicle reports in Nashville from Sunday, November 17, through Saturday, November 23, shows that 14.3% of the automobiles taken (two 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.
