Concern regarding a cable company employee soliciting cable offers in the area of single soldier billets has emerged recently at Fort Meade. Subsequently, the services the military members paid for were not fulfilled as agreed.

A company that unlawfully solicits on post or engages in fraudulent business practices can be brought before the Fort Meade’s Armed Forces Disciplinary Control Review Board (AFDCB), which examines solicitation complaints.

The business owner is invited to attend a board meeting conducted by the AFDCB to address the concerns of the board. If the board is not satisfied with the business owners plan to change the behavior or unsafe practice, the board can recommend having the business placed on the off-limits establishment listing.

The board’s recommendations are given to Garrison Commander Col. Brian P. Foley, who has the authority to put a company on the off-limits establishment list.

If solicitors have been escorted off post and return to the post at another time, they are considered to be criminally trespassing and are issued a citation to appear in federal magistrate court.

Call the Fort Meade Police, 301-677-6540, if you see any form of solicitation happening in your community, work, or billet areas.
