Deter soliciting at private residences
Receive guidelines and a free sign.
Boca Raton, FL The Boca Raton Police Services Department's Crime Prevention Unit recently introduced their newest campaign, which addresses the concerns of solicitation at private residences. According to Sergeant Debbie Landoskey, The community response was so overwhelming we decided to host a series of community education meetings addressing the laws and ordinances relating to soliciting.
The laws governing soliciting are complicated. However, there is a City ordinance that helps residents avoid unwanted soliciting. The ordinance states that it is unlawful for any person to solicit at a home where a sign is displayed near the entrance that reads No soliciting or No peddling or words to that effect.
The meetings are open to all residents of the City of Boca Raton and will cover information relating to soliciting statutes and ordinances. The signs will be limited to one person per household..
The meetings will be held at 7:00 p.m. in the Royal Palm Room of the Boca Raton Community Center, 150 Crawford Boulevard, on May 25, May 27, and June 1, 3, 10, and 17. Sign quantities are limited, so please R.S.V.P. with the date you will be attending by sending an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org
