[ARCHIVED] Do Not Knock registry bars door-to-door sales calls

Unless your property is prominently posted with ‘No Trespassing’ or ‘No Soliciting’ signs, anyone is free to approach your house and knock on your door. Many such visitors, including delivery services, petitioners and candidates for public office, union organizers and religious groups are legitimate, constitutionally protected and frequently welcome. But others, although legal, are not always welcome – particularly if they’re fundraising solicitations or sales calls for products, subscriptions, or home services.

Cranberry requires that solicitors be licensed by its police department, that they display their license when making calls, and that they limit their solicitations to certain defined hours. Starting last year, Cranberry extended those protections by creating a Do Not Knock registry. Residents who sign up are put on a list, which is updated regularly and distributed to licensed solicitors. It directs them not to approach the addresses on that list or risk having their license revoked and face possible trespassing charges. However, registry protection is only valid for one year at a time. Anyone who signed up last year will need to re-register in order to extend their participation through 2019.
