The Nashville Police Department strongly encourages Nashvillians to lock their automobile doors, secure any valuables—especially guns, and remove the keys.

MNPD’s special initiative to combat car theft and related crimes, begun on February 1, has resulted in 459 arrests and the recoveries of 263 stolen vehicles and 107 guns.

So far this year, 305 guns have been stolen from vehicles in Nashville, 16 were taken from autos just last week. The total number of guns stolen this year in Davidson County is 431, which means that 70% of guns stolen so far in 2024 have been taken from automobiles. Last year at this same time, 477 guns had been stolen from vehicles, a 36% decrease so far this year.

Going hand in hand with vehicle burglaries is vehicle theft. Too many automobiles remain easy targets because keys are left inside or made available to thieves. Just like guns taken from vehicles, these stolen autos are also routinely involved in criminal activities, including carjackings and robberies.
