Solicitor Permits

In most cases, door-to-door solicitors must be licensed and have their licenses readily available upon request. There are some exceptions. Contact 216-491-1220 with questions.

Permit applicants must:

  • Get an FBI and BCI background check, including electronic fingerprinting.
  • Complete the permit application and get it notarized.
  • Contact the SHPD each time the solicitor will be in the area conducting business.

Permit applications are available at the Shaker Heights Police Department, 3355 Lee Rd.
