Safety Tips

Parking & Safety Tips


While we consider downtown Lexington a VERY safe place, below are some parking safety tips that you should consider when parking anywhere.

Before you park:

  • Always Lock Your Doors
  • Roll Up and Lock Your Windows
  • Do Not Leave Valuables In Sight - (phones, pagers, purses, wallets, etc., invite theft)
  • Put valuables and packages in the trunk or out of sight before arriving at the parking facility.
  • If you have the option, choose a parking spot that is well-lit.
  • Do not hide a spare key in or on your car - it can be found
  • Be Aware and Report any Suspicious Activity Immediately to the Lexington Police Dept. 258-3600 or for emergencies dial 911.

After you park:

  • Walk with a confident and positive attitude.
  • Don't Walk Alone At Night.

When returning to your vehicle:

  • If possible, return to your car with an escort or in a group.
  • Have your door key in hand.
  • When approaching your vehicle look inside before entering to make sure there are no unwanted occupants. After entering, lock all doors.
  • Once inside the car, lock the door and start the engine. Start moving the car as soon as possible after getting situated.
  • If there is any concern for personal safety, for any reason, notify the Police immediately.
  • Avoid desolate areas that are lightly traveled and, when possible, walk to your vehicle with others.
  • Never offer rides to people you do not know.
