Metropolitan Nashville Police Department Safe Place Program

How the Safe Place Program Works

Safe Place is a unique partnership with the business community and schools that serves a critical role in assisting the victims of hate crimes. Businesses and schools that participate place an easily recognizable decal at their entrances. This symbol is a message to victims of hate crimes that the location has partnered with the police, will call 911 on their behalf and allow them a safe place stay on the premises until the police arrive.
