Ask a Cop



You might be able to get a free cell phone

Question: Cell Phones

So many answers depend upon having a cell phone. What if I don't have a cell phone?


A cell phone, if charged, can be used to dial 911 whether you have paid service or not.

Since any cell phone that is charged can call 911, when you get a new cell phone, don't toss it. Please donate it to any YWCA or ALIVE SHELTER. Old cell phones are distributed to those who might need them to call 911.

Contact your local YWCA regarding cell phone donating or about getting one for yourself.


Speaking of items to donate…also drop your old eye glasses off at any vision center and they will be donated to low income families or the elderly who cannot afford new glasses or prescriptions.
