A solicitor permit is required for any company going door to door in a residential area within the city that solicits funds for goods or services (i.e. selling products for profit).
As part of the Solicitor Permit issuing process, all individuals are required to have a Civilian Fingerprint Background Check completed by the Division of Police. This can be done by signing up for a Civilian Fingerprint Check. The Solicitor Permit application must be completed and submitted at the time of the Civilian Fingerprint appointment.
Note: Individuals are required to wear masks and will be required to answer health screening questions prior to performing the fingerprints.
If you have any questions, please call (937) 645-7300, option 1 and ask to speak with our Administrative Assistant or Records Clerk.
