There are no organizations who have door-to-door sales permits other than those listed above. If a group approaches you any other day or at any other location not listed, please call the police desk sergeant at 610-655-6116.

Residents of Reading: The Reading Police Department would like you to be careful when approached by vendors and door-to-door salespersons. Please check that they have the proper permt from the office of the Chief of Police, not just a business license from City Hall. We have been made aware that there are companies going door to door without a permit and being overly aggressive with residents.

Be Careful of the following:

1) Don't let them push you into letting them come into your home.

2) Make sure they have clear, legible, official company identification.

3) Make them produce the permit they obtained from the Police Department.

4) Do not be pressured into signing a contract until you have time to review all information and the validity of the company.

6) Consider just taking their information and tell them you will call them at another time.

7) Make them take "NO" for an answer if you do not want the goods or service being offered.

 

IF YOU FEEL UNSAFE OR ANY OF THE ABOVE IS HAPPENING, DO NOT HESITATE TO CALL THE POLICE DEPARTMENT AT 610-655-6116.
