The Sheriff’s Office is participating in a program to supply 911 Emergency Cell Phones to victims of abuse and others who may not have access to a phone in case of an emergency. The program, in cooperation with the National Sheriff’s Association, takes discarded cell phones and converts them into 911 Emergency Cell phones. These phones can only call 911. The phones are distributed, free of charge, to abuse victims and others who may not have access to phone in emergency situations.

The Sheriff asks that you drop off any old or discarded cell phones to the Sheriff’s Office at 600 Island Road. The phones will then be converted to 911 phones and distributed as described above.
