The Cedar Rapids Police Department wants to remind you that anyone who sells goods or services door-to-door needs to be licensed to do so.
Those salespeople should carry their permit, which is issued by the City Clerk and Police Department after a criminal background check and submitting an application. That permit contains a photograph of the salesperson.
The Police Department says they've gotten complaints about salespeople in the past, and they encourage you to look at the license issued by the city before doing business with a door-to-door solicitor.
If you have any questions about a permit, call the Cedar Rapids City Clerk at (319) 286-5060; to report a possible scam, call the Police Department at (319) 286-5491.
