Subject: Summer Door-to-Door Salespeople

Good afternoon everyone, I wanted to take a moment to provide some
information on our usual door-to-door visitors that we seem to
encounter every summer… Please see the attached information on alarm
and security salespeople, as well as the requirements for solicitors
in general.

Please do share this information with anyone you feel will benefit
from it. As always, if you have any questions or need assistance,
please do not hesitate to contact me.

Stay safe,

MPO Leta Krieger

Per Article II, Section 26-26 of the Virginia Beach City Code, door-to-door solicitors must have a copy of the City-issued Solicitor’s permit on their person at the time they are soliciting. Solicitor’s Permits are obtained from the Police Services Division located in Building 11 (Police Headquarters). The box on the right side of the permit should contain a recent photo of the solicitor presenting it. Some businesses, such as charitable, non-profit organizations, and civic or religious organizations are exempt from this requirement; please see Virginia Beach City Code Section 26-26(b) for a complete listing of those organizations and individuals that are exempt from the Solicitor’s permit requirements.
