A 911 dispatcher in the Florida Panhandle received an unusual — albeit heartwarming — call from young resident on Thanksgiving Day.
“A little boy melted all the hearts in Walton County Sheriff’s Office Communication Center today,” read a post on Walton County Sheriff Michael A. Adkinson, Jr.’s Facebook page.
According to the post, a boy named Billy called 911 Thursday afternoon “to invite WCSO staff/deputies to come eat Thanksgiving dinner with he and his family.”
Billy was paid “a special visit” by deputy Damon Byrd and deputy Aaron Ethridge, who gave him a sheriff’s badge.
The deputies also allowed him to sit in their patrol car.
The Facebook post concluded, “While we do not encourage this use of 911 … we are so honored at the invitation. Thank you Billy for making all of our days here at WCSO.Love What Matters #LoveWhatMatters.”
