When in Nashville…

City Safety

Metro Nashville Police Department – Entertainment District Unit

  • Non-Emergency: 615-862-8600
  • This unit is solely dedicated to patrolling the downtown core that experiences the highest volumes of visitors, including convention-goers.

Here are a few safety tips to follow while you are attending:

  • Take off your badge when you leave the convention center.
  • Avoid being distracted by your mobile phone, but make sure your phone is charged and never let strangers borrow it.
  • Establish a “buddy” system with another meeting attendee and don’t go anywhere alone. Also, share schedules and check on each other periodically.
  • Know your destination and the best way to reach it. Avoid shortcuts that take you into unoccupied and unlit areas.
  • Carry bags, purses, and valuables in front of your body. Jackets with pockets provide a convenient alternative to reduce the chance for lost or stolen handbags.
  • Be sure your laptop is in a secure place. Laptops are attractive and easy targets for thieves.
  • If you see something, say something! Report suspicious activity to authorities.
