Neighborhood Warning: Door-to-Door Solictations

Post  Admin on Fri Dec 23, 2011 8:22 am

A recent notice from APD, especially pertinent since it is the holiday season...


Hi Everyone,

I’d like to pass along a caution to call 242-COPS if you encounter suspicious activity in your neighborhoods. The City of Albuquerque has a door-to-door solicitation ordinance on the books and all solicitors must carry a permit issued by the City of Albuquerque which shows the City seal and the signature of the City Treasurer. They should also have a photo ID. Solicitation can only occur between 9:00 am and dusk. In general, campaign workers and candidates and youth/juveniles are exempt.

I just got a call from a resident on Pinon Creek who was bothered by a solicitor at 6:30 pm last week. The man asked him if he had a home alarm and if so, was it being monitored. He had an ADT patch on his shirt and a clipboard and a lanyard around his neck, but the neighbor who reported the incident did not inspect it to see if it was a photo ID or City permit. If someone is at your door, acknowledge your presence, but do not feel you have to open the door to your home to anyone! In most cases, if you are interested in a product or service, you will seek out the information on your own rather than having someone show up on your doorstep.
