The police department has received complaints about door-to-door soliciting and with the campaign season approaching we want to get information out to everyone.  Bellevue Borough requires permits for all soliciting with the exemption for political canvassing and non-profit organizations.  The solicitor cannot attempt to sell you a product, i.e. home repair services.  The Borough does issue limited permits for organizations related to utility and franchise services, these would include local energy services and cable, internet and phone services.  The permits are issued by the Bellevue Code Office.

If you encounter anyone not listed in the above category please contact the police department to report the solicitation.  We want to prevent the illegal soliciting, more importantly we want to prevent someone from being caught in a scam or other criminal activity. 

Thank you,

Chief Sentner
