Below is the information that our Police Department has sent out to the media in preparation for the July 13th open public meeting between interested residents and staff members from the Kent Police Department. The topic is a timely one: door-to-door solicitors. There seems to be a lot of confusion and frankly frustration from residents over the modern version of the old traveling encyclopedia salesman.
The question we get a lot is — are these sales people legit? Does the City regulate their activity? Do they need to show a permit? Is it even safe to answer the door? These are all great questions and they will be the main focus of the public meeting which like the previous month is scheduled to begin at 7 pm at the Kent Police Training room.
