Door-to-door solicitors...BE AWARE 

News Story

Fraud Alert! The Polk County Sheriff’s Office reminds citizens of an on-going scam where thieves - posing as door-to-door solicitors - are either permitted inside by the homeowner or, persuades the homeowner to come outdoors.  All the while, a second person enters your home and removes valuables while you are being distracted.  Detectives urge you to use cautious judgement when encountering strangers at your home; never leave your home unsecured and unsupervised.  If you encounter any suspicious solicitors, we ask you to pick up your phone, dial 863-298-6200 and ask for a Polk County Sheriff’s Deputy to respond to your residence.
