Metro Nashville Safe Place Application

Signing up to become a participant in the Metro Nashville Safe Place Initiative is easy, free, and open to participants inside and/or outside the City of Nashville, and to all law enforcement agencies (world-wide). Participation is restricted to specific entities such as Businesses and/or Corporations, Social Service Organizations, Schools, and Government Agencies. Due to safety concerns, this program is not designed, or authorized for individual and/or residential use.

Prior to submitting your application, you must read and acknowledge the requirements section within the application form. Not understanding your responsibilities when participating in the Metro Nashville Safe Place Initiative will have a negative impact on your business, organization, government, and most importantly, the victims of these crimes.

Placement of Decals

Once you receive your Metro Nashville Safe Place decal, you must place it at the front entrance of your establishment. The placement location of the decal should be readily visible to the public from the sidewalk. Most establishments place the decal on their glass doors, or windows, 4 feet–6 feet up from the ground, so that the victims of crime who may be running by can easily see the decal and recognize the symbolism and messaging.
