No Soliciting Stickers now available to Bordentown Township residents.

Bordentown Township regularly responds to complaints regarding door to door solicitors and realizes that these uninvited guests can be an annoyance to many and negatively impact our quality of life. With that in mind, the Township will now provide official “NO KNOCK” front door stickers that are codified by ordinance.

The Bordentown Township Committee recently adopted Ordinance 2019-13 which allows residents to now display an official “NO KNOCK” sticker supplied for free by the Bordentown Township Police Department and Township Clerk’s office.

Bordentown Township Ordinance 2019-13 states:

In an attempt to allow residents to be free from door-to-door solicitations, residents may elect to display prominently on their outer most front doors an official "No Knock" sticker issued by the Bordentown Township Police Department that signifies that the residents do not wish to be disturbed.

No licensed or unlicensed peddler, solicitor or canvasser shall knock on the door or ring the doorbell of any residence upon which a "No Knock" sticker is so affixed. At the time that the license is issued, the individual shall be provided a sample of the Township "No Knock" sticker and a copy of this Ordinance. Peddling, soliciting or canvassing or any like activities conducted at a property at which a “No Knock” sticker is posted shall constitute a violation.

Township Residents can obtain their free sticker by coming to the Bordentown Township Town Hall, either to the Police Department Records Bureau or the Township Clerk’s Office any weekday between 8:30AM and 4:30PM and showing their New Jersey Driver’s License, tax bill or other suitable proof of residency.

As always if you have a question or are concerned about anyone who visits your home, please contact the BTPD at 609-298-4300 or in an emergency via 911.
