The Cedar Rapids Police Department would like to remind citizens that anyone who sells goods and services door-to-door must be licensed. A criminal background check is required before the application is approved by the City Clerk and Police Department.
Each person conducting business must obtain their own license. Everyone going door-to-door is required to carry the issued permit, which contains a photograph of the individual.
To verify that there is a permit for a specific business, call the Cedar Rapids City Clerk at (319) 286-5060. To report a possible scam, call the Police Department at (319) 286-5491.
