No Cold Calling Zones

No Cold Calling Zones aim to decrease doorstep crime incidents by specifying a Zone in which doorstep callers selling goods or services are not welcome. Zones are usually defined by lamp post signs and stickers placed in the doors or windows of homes within the Zone area.  Zones range in size from a few houses to several hundred homes. They may be set up in response to incidents, local intelligence, or on request - but all will follow a consultation process with residents.

Zones should meet three criteria before they can be set up:

  • a history of doorstep crime or distraction burglary
  • a vulnerable population
  • a defined geographical area
