The Livingston County Sheriff’s Office is accepting donated cell phones which are being cycled back into the 911 Cell Phone Bank Program which will help seniors and other citizens have cell phones for emergency use.

The 911 Cell Phone Bank was created to provide an ongoing and readily available source of emergency cell phones and funds to meet the unexpected and urgent needs of participating law enforcement and affiliated victim’s services agencies. By donating your cell phone you are doing more than just providing emergency communications for someone in need, the 911 Cell Phone Bank has generated hundreds of thousands of dollars and provided thousands of emergency cell phones for victim’s services organizations nationwide. They have successfully relieved the operational burden of managing an emergency cell phone program from our participants. The 911 Cell Phone Bank determines best use and maximizes cell phone donations.

You may donate your cell phone at 901 Webster Street, Chillicothe, MO 64601 or email Deputy Will Perez at wperez@livcoso.org and they will make contact with you.
