The Richland Hills Police Department processes and issues Solicitor's Permits. Any person desiring to conduct solicitation activities or handbill distribution within the City of Richland Hills shall complete a written application in-person and submit it to the Records Unit located at the Police Department.
The permit shall be valid for one year following the date of its issuance. A person commits an offense if the person engages in solicitation activities in the City without a valid permit. Please see City Ordinance 1479-23 regarding Solicitors for more detailed information and exemptions.
