Warren County Sheriff Daniel T. McEathron announced on Thursday, December 9, 2010 the implementation of a new program called the "911 Cell Phone Bank."
This program will provide free cell phones to senior citizens; individuals who live alone or victims of domestic violence or other violent crimes and who may have no way of contacting 911 for an emergency. Anyone with old, no longer used cell phones may turn them in at the Sheriff's Office. All cases, chargers or extra batteries are accepted as well. These phones will be shipped to the 911 Cell Phone Bank, an organization who provides the reconditioning and storage of cell phones. The Sheriff’s Office will contact the 911 Cell Phone Bank to acquire cell phones on an as needed basis. These cell phones will be distributed locally and will only have the capability to call 911.
