We maintain a proactive approach in
our efforts to prevent crimes in Indialantic, however, it is impossible for us
to patrol all areas of the town simultaneously. Please don’t make it easy for
the criminals! Keep your cars and houses secure and continue to report any
suspicious activity to the Police Department immediately.



The Police Department frequently receives calls in reference to door-to-door
solicitation. Under Indialantic Town Code Section 10-17 it is only unlawful for
a commercial solicitor or peddler to go in or on a private residence if the
property owner or occupant has given notice that they are not interested in
being approached by a peddler or solicitor. Notice may be given by posting and
continuously maintaining a sign not to exceed 4” x 12” in a conspicuous
location on the private residential property which states “No Soliciting” or
words of a substantially similar nature. Condominium associations and owners
(or their agents) of a non-condominium apartment building may post the common
areas of the property as previously provided. Peddlers and solicitors are not required
to be licensed by the Town and the code does not address solicitation at a
business. The full text of the code can be viewed on the Town web site, or a copy can be obtained at Town Hall. “No Solicitation”
signs are available for purchase from the volunteers at the Indialantic Fire
Department (723-0366) for $5.00. If you have any questions please don’t
hesitate to contact Community Policing Officer Ryan Deschenes, or the
police department at 723-7788.
