Several people have been going door to door asking for the resident to “vote” for them by purchasing
a magazine or a service.
No one is permitted to go door to door without first getting a permit from the police department.
Should someone come to your door soliciting for ANY reason, they must have a permit that you can
see. If you don’t see the permit, or even if they do have a permit but you feel there is something not
right, call the police. If you don’t want to dial 9-1-1, then call the non-emergency number
856-660-0500. Make the call immediately. Don’t wait until the next day. If you call right away,
the police usually will locate the people and check them out.
No soliciting is permitted after 8:00 PM or prior to 8:00 AM.
Do not allow any solicitor into your home.
Remember, if for any reason you feel uncomfortable with these people, call the police IMMEDIATELY!!!
