The Clarksville Police Department wants to remind citizens to Park Smart.
- Lock Your Vehicle – Always lock your car and close your windows, even for short durations, when your vehicle is unattended
- Secure Your Valuables – A vehicle becomes a desirable target when you leave purses, money, laptops, and cellphones visible to a passerby. Also, leaving firearms inside of a vehicle overnight, unsecured or without some sort of positive control can be a formula for disaster.
- Take Your Keys With You – Never leave the key in the ignition or fob in the car when it is unattended or running.
