The City of Twin Falls is reminding residents that all transient vendors, including door-to-door salespeople, must carry with them a City issued license at all times. And transient vendors must display the license upon request from citizens or law enforcement.
Transient vendors must be fingerprinted by the Twin Falls Police Department in order to conduct a background check. By conducting background checks using fingerprint recognition, the City is able to perform nationwide background checks on individuals who travel door-to-door for sales.
Residents are encouraged to ask transient vendors to display their City issued license, and citizens should report vendors conducting door-to-door sales without a City issued license by calling 208-735-4357. If residents feel threatened or unsafe, they should call 911 immediately.
All transient vendors who are licensed by the City of Twin Falls will carry the license on their person at all times when conducting business. The only exceptions to the nationwide background checks are non-profits.
