PUBLIC NOTICE: It is a BAD IDEA to give a child a phone to play with, whether it is a working or non-working phone at the time.  Regardless of whether or not the phone has minutes on it, or if it has a contract, it can still call 911.  If a combination of those three numbers are dialed, or a partial combination of them, or if a bunch of keys are pressed at the same time, that phone will call 911.  The Polk County Sheriff’s Office Emergency 911 Line receives approximately 30 calls a week that are accidental calls, mostly made by children playing with old phones.  Those calls tie up an emergency line and personnel that can hinder work going on during an actual emergency.  Please be careful with your phone!
