New Ordinance Pertaining to Illegal Soliciting/Panhandling

Posted 09-29-17

The City of Sevierville has established a new ordinance designed to discourage illegal soliciting/panhandling and improve certain areas in the City for residents and visitors. Giving to panhandlers may seem like a good thing, but it may do more harm than good. Consider that:
• Giving panhandlers money may discourage them from finding a long term solution to their difficulties.
• Panhandling can cause pedestrian and traffic safety issues
• Panhandling often makes pedestrians and motorists concerned for their safety.
• Panhandlers sometimes buy alcohol and/or drugs with the money you give.
• When confronted by a panhandler, the best thing to do is politely decline and continue on your way.
• Social service agencies are available to help persons who are in need of food, clothing, shelter, healthcare and employment.

If you witness illegal soliciting or panhandling, please call the Sevierville Police Department @ 865-453-5506.
