    PSA:  🎶 ☎️Stop callin', stop callin' I don't wanna talk anymore I got my head and my heart on the dance floor☎️ 🎶 💃🕺  We get a LOT of 911 hang-ups from cell phones. Each time this happens, an officer is sent out to ensure that no one is in need of help. Recently, we've been dispatched to several instances of 911 hang-ups involving children using old deactivated cell phones as toys or game systems.   Old cell phones without service can still call 911 as a safety feature. Please don't allow young children to use them as toys.  If you DO accidentally call 911- please DON'T HANG UP. We don't know the difference between an accidental dial and a person in distress, and officers will be dispatched to search for the caller. Remain on the line and explain the situation to the dispatcher. We may still respond in person just to double check for safety, but knowing an address can greatly speed up our response time and efficacy. #ladygaga4ever #stoptelephoningme #nineoneone #police #seymour #seymourpd #hangup #cellphone #hello

    My 4 year old did this last year. I had no idea old phones could still go through. I felt horrible and the dispatch lady was not too impressed. He did call about 20 times before i realized he was actually talking to someone. I definitely watch him closely now.

    It pings to the nearest address so could been someone driving by or a neighbor .

    I have had your officers on two different early morning occasions. Knocking on my door. Because of a 911 hangup from a cell phone that pinged to my address. Even though everyone was asleep

    Nothing against the police department or any of its fine officers. Just making a statement. That this clearly happens

    Someone ought to tell that young man to wear black shoes with dark colored suits. Not light brown. Btw congratulations.
    1 week ago Vico Ray 2
    Tim Blandford A clean pair at least. Also, nothing worse than using a suit that is not your size. 🥴 It really says a lot about a person.
    But then again, he is getting sworn in to be a cop 🌚
    1 week ago Tim Blandford 2
    Vico Ray agreed
    1 week ago Amber Nicole White 20
    He’s young. We do not know his background. This could be his best pair of shoes and a borrowed suit.
    Regardless, he is taking an oath to serve and protect you.

    Tim Blandford lighten up.
    1 week ago Cheyenne Blevins
    Tim Blandford there had to be one.  Hes swearing his life to protect you and me and everyone else in the city. Something I bet you don’t have the balls to do 😌 and especially in the times where police are being assaulted by doing their jobs.
