If you are concerned, you should probably call the non emergency phone number for the police. I believe the number is (650) 329-2413. Solicitors do need a permit.

You don't have to deal with these people, they have never given me any trouble when I've just said no, but you can make a case that it's a safety measure for emergency vehicles to have a highly visible number on the curb.

A few years ago, a boy scout troop offered to do this for our neighborhood as a fundraiser. Some chose to, others did not. A very efficient job was done for a fair price and there were no problems. I chose to go with this project because I agree with the safety/emergency practicalities of this plus I think fundraising by people who actually want to work or do a useful job is much better than buying cookies.
