Door to Door Solicitors

Warm Weather brings out Solicitors

Although the City of Woodlawn Park has a NO Solicitation without a permit ordinance. Solicitors find their way into our city on occasion. If you encounter a solicitor without a Woodlawn Park permit (the cities DO NOT KNOCK LIST superedes a permit) remind them a permit is required and ask them to leave. Report the incident to Chief Heaton (439-6545).

Below are additional recomendations from LMPD 5th District should you encounter a solicitor legal or otherwise.


With the weather warming we tend to see door to door solicitors increase.  Although most of these solicitors are legitimate and associated with legitimate companies some are not.  We have already received some reports of door to door solicitors in 5th Division neighborhoods.   We have not associated any criminal incidents related to door to door solicitors but we did want to pass on these tips for your.

    • First and foremost do not let them into your home for any reason.  Do not allow them to use your phone or restroom.  
    • Do not give them money.
    • If you have any doubts they are legitimate ask for identification or credentials.  


    • Do not provide any personal information. 


    • You have the right to tell them no thank you, ask them to leave and close the door. 


  • Call us if you have any reason to believe they are not legitimate or refuse to leave.  Also if you observe them looking in windows, trying doors or entering peoples back yards call us immediately.  If they become aggressive, irate or hostile you can call 911 immediately. 
  • Please call us when the activity is occurring so officers can respond to the area and try to locate the subject and determine if they are legitimate. 
Metro Ordinance 115.361 lists some general rules about solicitors.  Here is the web address.
