Door to Door Solicitor Advice

Recently the El Cerrito Police Department received several calls regarding unwanted door to door solicitors. If you ever feel uncomfortable with a solicitor, please don't answer the door and call the police department immediately at (510) 233-1214 or in case of an emergency, call 911. Solicitors are required to have a permit to conduct this activity. If a residence has a sign that says "No Solicitors", they are not allowed to come to your door. We urge you to use caution about giving a solicitor your personal or financial information. You shouldn't allow them into your residence for any reason. More information about the rules governing solicitors can be found in the City of El Cerrito's municipal code which can be accessed at
