(UPDATE) The Great Falls Police Department has reported that the people who offered free “air quality checks” Thursday were employees of a local business.

Staff at Planning and Community Development confirmed the business has a permit to go door-to-door with their products.

The GFPD encourages everyone to be cautious when a stranger knocks on your door and advises calling the police if you feel uncomfortable about a situation or person.

(January 24, 2019) The Great Falls Police Department is warning Great Falls residents about a person offering free “air quality checks.”

The GFPD said officers have investigated several reports of a male contacting residents at their homes and offering a free “air quality check.”

The suspect is described as a thin, white male with red hair. They have additional information that there may be two other males with dark skin using the same tactics outside city limits.

While GFPD is unsure of an intent, they have confirmed no one has pulled a permit from the City Manager’s Office.

The GPFD advises not falling for the person’s attempt at gaining access into homes and for residents to call the department’s non-emergency number if approached by the male.

The GFPD non-emergency line is (406) 727-7688 X5.
