Solicitor Information

The Association would like to share the following information from the College Station Police Department:

We have received a few calls and messages regarding solicitors in the area and we want to remind our citizens to call CSPD if they feel threatened or if the solicitor has violated the following:

1. It is unlawful for a person 14 years of age or older to solicit an occupant of residential premises, unrequested

a) Without first registering and obtaining an identification badge issued by the City in accordance with this section;

b) Except between the hours of 9:00 a.m. and one half-hour (1/2) after sunset;

c)If the residence conspicuously displays at or near the primary residence, a readily legible sign, bearing any of the words: "No Trespassing"/"No Peddlers"/"No Advertising"/"No Solicitation"/"No handbills."

2. It is unlawful for the registrant to allow any other person to use or wear their own City-issued indentification badge.

3. It is unlawful for any registrant or registrant's agent to represent that City's issuance of a certificate of registration or indentification badge constitutes the City's endorsement or approval of the purposes of any particular solicitation.

The most important part is to call CSPD at 979-764-3600. We can't take enforcement action if we don't know about it! They are permitted to operate  within College Station because they have not violated City Ordinance as they have been issued valid permits (always ask to see a solicitor's City Permit!!). However, that is because we aren't being called or recieving complaints.
