Belmont Police warn residents about unregistered solicitors

Belmont Police Lt. Kristin Daley wants to remind residents "tis the season" for people going door to door to solicit sales. However, all solictiros much have a license from the Belmont Police which they get when they register as solicitors.

When a solicitor registers, they receive a lanyard that says, "Belmont Police," and has the name of their business and their photo on it. This is a lanyard issued by the Belmont Police that solicitors should wear.

If you want to make sure a solicitor is registered, call the Belmont Police at 617-993-2501

If a solicitor is not registered, they may not be an honest person.
