Please be advised this practice is illegal. However, the N.O.P.D. does encourage everyone to have large, highly visible numbers on their residence so it can easily be found in case of emergency.
You can see a short video of the flyer distributor below and the actual flyer at the bottom of this post.

Thank you for inquiring about this.
