Home Solicitor Warning

In an effort to protect our residents from unwanted solicitations at their home, the police department strictly enforces Lower Makefield Township’s solicitation ordinance. All solicitors are fully screened and must have a permit issued by the Chief of Police prior to allowing them access to our residents. It has come to our attention that many companies and individuals are avoiding the background and screening process and soliciting without permission of township police.

One group in particular, Power Windows and Siding, also known as Power Home Remodeling Group, Pure Marketing, Premium Advertising, Impressive Advertising or any other name is not approved by the township. However, they have been reported in various areas of the township knocking on doors and soliciting our residents. Whenever possible, police have identified, cited and/or arrested these individuals, however, it appears they are persistent and continue to solicit without permission. Police are asking our residents cooperation in promptly reporting any suspicious solicitors but in particular, this group, by immediately calling the police non-emergency number at 215-493-4011. People should not patronize anyone offering anything for sale or services without thoroughly checking their reputation & verifying that they are legitimate.
