1.  On New Year's Eve, if I have had too much to drink and am afraid to drive will an officer escort me home?

Yes.
On New Year's Eve, a lot of people will celebrate and consume alcoholic
beverages at parties, friends' homes, etc.  If you feel you have
consumed too much alcohol or know someone who has and they need
transportation within the City of Nashville, contact the Nashville
Police Department.  The Nashville officers, if available, will provide
transportation.

2.  Does the City of Nashville have a curfew?

The
mayor, at any time a condition has arisen or is imminent which in his
judgment constitutes a civil disturbance, riot, insurrection or time of
local disaster, may declare a state of emergency and impose a curfew for
such time and for such areas as he deems necessary to meet such
emergency.

 

There is a curfew for juveniles, any person seventeen (17) or less
years of age to be or remain in or upon the streets within the City of
Nashville at night during the period ending at 5:00am and beginning:

(a)  At midnight on Friday and Saturday nights, and

(b)  10:00pm on all other nights.

 

Exceptions to the juvenile curfew would include:

(a)  When accompanied by a parent of such minor.

(b)  When accompanied by an adult, at least twenty-one (21) years of
age, who is authorized by a parent to accompany the minor for a
designated period of time and purpose with a specified area.

(c)  When exercising First Amendment rights protected by the United
States Constitution, such as the free exercise of religion, freedom of
speech and the right of such exercise by delivering to the Chief of
Police a written communication signed by the juvenile and the parent.

(d)  In cases of reasonable necessity for a juvenile remaining on the
streets, but only after the juvenile's parent has communicated to the
Chief of Police.

(e)  When returning home from and within one (1) hour after the
termination of a school or city sponsored activity, or an activity of a
religious or other voluntary association.

(f)  When engaging in the duties of bona fide employment or traveling
without undue delay or detour from home to the place of employment, or
from the place of employment to the home.

interstate travel, whether through, beginning or ending in Nashville.

As
a general rule, we do no respond to persons having locked themselves
out of their vehicles.  Officers are not allowed to use "slim jims" or
"flat bars."  The best persons to call in such cases are those who have a
key, a tow truck, or an emergency auto service provider.  We will only
respond to a locked vehicle in those cases where a small child is locked
in the vehicle or where some other threat to a person exists. 

14.  If weather conditions of snow or ice hindered my ability to get to work or the grocery store, would an officer escort me?

Yes. 
Please be aware that these requests are handled by the Nashville Police
Department and the Howard County Sheriff's Department on a time and manpower available basis and we cannot guarantee that officers will be able to meet every request.
