6/9/2016: AMHOA residents need to call police on solicitors. Last year (2015) signs were placed at each entrance prohibiting solicitors. However, solicitors continue to do their business in our neighborhood. When asked on how to handle unwanted solicitors, Overland Park Police Officer, Patricia Cleary, had the following statement:
Normally when the police receive solicitor calls officers will show up and attempt to make contact with the solicitor. Usually the police just ask them to leave the area unless we find out something illegal about the solicitor or the situation. As for signage. It’s pretty easy for solicitors to state they never saw the signs so that’s why the police will warn the solicitor and ask them to leave. The police would suggest if the homeowner makes contact with the solicitor to point out that the community entrance has signs prohibiting solicitation. If the solicitors refuse to leave the police can then charge for trespassing, if the homeowner chooses to press charges. If the solicitor becomes rude or disorderly call the police and make that known. The police will definitely handle that. Soliciting is one of those situations that is hard to get rid of completely.
6/24/2016 Continuing issues with solicitors in neighborhood. After many hours talking with Police, City Clerk and reviewing the Municipal Codes on Solicitors this is what the HOA is being told for homeowners. If the homeowner wants NO soliciting at their residence the best a homeowner can do is place a sign on the homeowner’s door. The sign is specific and can be printed or mailed to the homeowner. For details see City Clerk No Solicitor website. Be aware this sign will stop all solicitors including charitable organizations such as schools and Boy/Girl Scouts. If you are still having problems call the Police Department at 913-895-6300 (non-emergency) and sign a complaint against the solicitor.
