Officers Respond To Odd Call From Young Boy, Find Something They NEVER Expected!

Officers Respond To Odd Call From Young Boy, Find Something They NEVER Expected!

What did officers find when they answered a 911 call in Florida? Well, a little boy who loves the police and wanted to invite officers over to his house on Thanksgiving to have dinner with his family. Billy is too young to know that you shouldn’t use 911 to do such a thing. The call center staff immediately had their hearts melted by the innocent, kind and caring gesture made by this little boy. They are used to people being hurt and in need… they expect crime and the worst that society has to puke up… but they never expected that what they would get on Thanksgiving would be caring and love from one little boy. It brings tears to your eyes.

After the call came in from Billy, two officers visited the young man and awarded him a sheriff’s badge and let him sit in their patrol car. Billy was all smiles and in little boy heaven. “My son Billy is still talking about how nice the deputies were to him today, and he has his mind set on being a cop when he is older,” Landi McCormick wrote on the sheriff’s office Facebook page. “His words, ‘Momma, I’m gonna be a cop when I get older so I can do the same thing they did for me today for another little boy or girl!’” Another warrior is born.


From TheBlaze:

On Thanksgiving day, a young boy named Billy hopped on the phone and dialed 911.

Nope, there were no emergencies at his Florida home. No broken legs from a football game. No one choked on a turkey bone.

All Billy wanted to do was invite Walton County sheriff’s deputies and staff over for dinner with his family.

Not realizing 911 is reserved for emergency calls only, Billy’s gesture still “melted all the hearts” at the communication center, the sheriff’s office Facebook page noted.

“With all the bad calls we take on a daily basis, this one was a welcomed happy call that made all of us smile,” Lead Communications Officer Monica Webster said.

In response, Deputy Damon Byrd and Deputy Aaron Ethridge paid a visit to Billy’s home Thursday and gave him a sheriff’s badge and let him sit in a patrol car.

Landi McCormick added: “I also want to thank the deputies that came out today. Y’all are amazing people. Thank you so much. Billy enjoyed y’all’s company today!” It wasn’t just a thrill for her son, it was for all of them and this is the way it should be. The police are the good guys and our heroes. It really shouldn’t take the kind gesture of a selfless little boy to remind us of that.

The sheriff’s office thanked Billy for his generosity — and reminded everyone else to avoid calling the emergency line for non-emergencies. “While we do not encourage this use of 911… we are so honored at the invitation,” the department wrote on Facebook. This is absolutely fitting for Thanksgiving… we should all give thanks for our boys and girls in blue.
