Police remind the public that when approached at your residence by door-to-door salespersons, use the utmost caution, and ensure that the salesperson provides the proper personal identification, company identification, as well as a website or phone number where they can be verified as a representative of that company.

The public is also reminded that they have the right to refuse service and request that the person(s) leave their property. If you feel you are being harassed, please call the police non-emergency number at 935-3311 or if it is an emergency, dial 911.
