A background check must be completed on each person applying for a permit. Before making application, please schedule your criminal history record check by making an appointment to be fingerprinted - Fingerprint Applicant Services of Texas (FAST) online at www.identogo.com or by calling 1-888-467-2080. Once you have received your criminal history record, you may complete the solicitor permit application ($10 fee) at the Live Oak Justice Center, 8022 Shin Oak, Live Oak.
There will be one fee for the permit depending on the type of permit you are applying for and the length of time you choose. We will then make a badge that each individual must wear at all times while soliciting. This badge will have a color photo and beginning and end date of permit. Approved hours for soliciting are 8 a.m. to sunset.
All permits involving food must go through the Fire Department before being eligible for the application with the Police Department.
Please contact 210-653-9140 Ext. 244 for permits related to food sales.
Please contact 210-945-1700 for all other solicitor permits.
The solicitor permit application is available on the main page of the police department on this website.
