Solicitors

The Village of Lincolnshire requires solicitors to obtain a Solicitor/Peddler Permit from the Police Department before initiating door-to-door sales. Authorized solicitors must wear a Village-issued vest (pictured left) and carry a Village-issued identification card at all times while performing door-to-door solicitation. Solicitors in Lincolnshire are regulated by Title 3, Chapter 5 “Peddlers and Solicitors” of the Village Code.

Per Village Code, solicitors are only permitted to operate Monday – Saturday from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Solicitors are prohibited from operating on Sunday, as well as state and federal holidays.

Homeowners and occupants have the ultimate right to determine whether solicitors are invited into their residence or onto their property. Residents who do not want solicitors on their property should clearly display a “No Soliciting” sign.

Dial 9-1-1 immediately to report any suspicious behavior.

Call the Lincolnshire Police Department at 847-913-2350 for any questions about active solicitors or the permit process.
