 Frequently Asked Questions

  1. What can our community do about solicitors? There are situations in which door-to-door activity is not restricted. For more information, please view our Police FAQs page
  2. What can I do about trespassing? Property owners may prohibit persons from trespassing on their property, but the person must first be put on notice. Signs are enforceable. Verbal, in-person notice will suffice. Written notice, personally served on the party, is optimal.
