PD_Badge_Thumbnail

The Erie Police Department and the Town Clerk’s office has been in touch with Vivint Smart Home regarding solicitors that are canvasing neighborhoods in Erie. Numerous complaints have been made about aggressive behavior, late night or after dark contacts, ignoring soliciting signage and attempting to use scare tactics in their sales pitch. As of Thursday, July 26, 2018 the Town of Erie has revoked the Solicitors Permit that was issued to this company.


The Erie Police Department would like to remind residents that when solicitors come to your door you have the right to ask to see their solicitors permit, and if you feel uncomfortable you should ask them to leave your property.

If any further issues arise with Vivint Smart Home or any other solicitor, please contact Dispatch at 303-441-4444 and ask to speak to an Erie Police Officer.
