Door-to-Door Commercial Solicitors in Skokie

The Village allows commercial organizations to apply for door-to-door solicitation permits in Skokie.  Approved door-to-door commercial solicitors are generally seeking to obtain potential customers by offering services or goods.

 

Please note that all commercial solicitors must be registered with the Village of Skokie Police Department and all solicitors must wear the identification badges supplied by the Skokie Police Department at all times during the solicitation period.

 

Below are some suggestions on how to respond when a commercial solicitor rings your doorbell:

·        Don't open the door if you're uncomfortable with a solicitors visit.

·        Do ask for identification and proof of solicitors permit from the Village of Skokie.

·        Don't provide billing or financial information unless you completely understand what the solicitor is offering and you are interested in the offer.

·        Do call the Skokie Police Department non-emergency number, 847/982-5900 to confirm the permit or 9-1-1 to report suspicious activity.

·        Do request a no-solicitors sticker from the Village Clerks' office to avoid door-to-door solicitor visits by calling 847/933-8203.

·        Do call 9-1-1 if a solicitor won't leave after being requested to do so.  Solicitors must refrain from soliciting or knocking on doors where “No Solicitors Invited” signs are displayed.

 

Commercial solicitors cannot visit door-to-door before 9 a.m. or after 7:30 p.m., Monday through Saturday. Solicitation is not allowed at any time on a Sunday or on a state or national holiday.

 

For more information on the event please contact the Skokie Police Department at 847/982-5919.
