Notice to Parents From Baileyville Police Chief Bob Fitzsimmons

I just wanted to reach out to you about old cell phones that you may let your little ones play with. Last night [4/19] we had a trooper going door to door around town looking for the phone that called 9-1-1 twice. It was a phone that was disabled but still had the capability to make a 9-1-1 call. A door-to-door search for somebody that may have an emergency is a very labor intensive endeavor but one that is necessary to make sure everybody is safe. If your old phone has that feature, please don't let your little one use it as a toy as it has real life features that cause first responders to act. Thank you.
