This little boy calls 911 to invite police officers over for Thanksgiving dinner

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.”

Considering most calls that 911 dispatchers receive are from people in a state of distress, the call was a pleasant aberration.

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

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.”
