LCSO Reminds Residents of County Ordinances Regarding Peddlers and Solicitors - The warmer weather brings an increase in door-to-door solicitors to our area. While some door-to-door salespersons are honest, the chance does exist that you may be taken advantage of if you are not cautious and informed.
In the past two weeks several subjects have been issued a summons by Loudoun County Sheriff's Deputies for soliciting without a license, in violation of the county ordinance.
All solicitors that operate inside the county are required to register with the Loudoun County Sheriff's Office. As part of this registration a background check is completed and information on their employer is obtained. Through this process, anyone approved to solicit is issued an identification card showing they are a registered solicitor. All solicitors are required, upon request, to provide their identification card to any person they are contacting as a solicitor.
In addition to registering, all solicitors must uphold a code of conduct. If a solicitor is found in violation of this code, their privileges will be revoked and they will not be authorized to solicit within Loudoun County for a period of one year.
Solicitation hours in the county are weekdays 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Soliciting is not permitted on Sunday's or state or national holidays. Solicitors must leave when asked by the property owner. Solicitors must conduct themselves in a lawful and orderly manner and must identify themselves and their purpose of being on the property.
The Peddlers and Solicitor ordinances can be viewed at: http://www.loudoun.gov/controls/speerio/resources/RenderContent.aspx?data=5ed630687d0b4af98dcb1dfd6ea6681c&tabid=326&fmpath=%2fOrdinances%2fCodified%2fBusiness+Regulation+and+Taxation%2fBusiness+Regulation
Any person who witnesses a violation of this code of conduct or encounters a solicitor who refuses to provide their county issued solicitor permit or does not have a permit should contact the Loudoun County Sheriff's Office by calling their 24-hour-non-emergency number at 703-777-1021.
