Tip of the Month

Inactive Cell Phones Can Still Call 911

Over half of 911 calls originate from cell phones. This number will only increase as traditional phone service declines and cell phone adoption rates continue to rise. In the US and Canada, wireless phone operators are required by law to connect all calls to 911 services, whether the customer's account is active, past due or canceled.

Many of us have old cell phones in our homes right now. Why not take the time to charge those old phones and place them in handy locations such as your glove box or garage - just in case you need to call 911.

For those who have extra phones, the Henderson Police Department is actively collecting cell phones at all of their police stations. The phones will then be redistributed to those in need.

If you have any questions about inactive cell phones, donating your old cell phone or picking up a refurbished cell phone, please contact Ofc. Kohlmeier at HPD, (702) 267-4495 or david.kohlmeier@
