Florida boy calls 911 to invite cops to Thanksgiving dinner

A Florida boy was so thankful for cops, he invited them to Thanksgiving dinner.

The Walton County youngster called 911 Thursday and asked if the sheriff’s deputies would like to join his family for turkey and trimmings.

“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 Monica Webster, the Walton County Sheriff’s Office lead communications officer.

The boy — only identified as Billy — apparently didn’t know that the 911 line is only for emergencies.

Two deputies stopped by Billy’s house Thursday to deliver a sheriff’s badge to the police-loving kid. Deputies Damon Byrd and Aaron Ethridge posed for photos with Billy and let him sit in their patrol car.

The sheriff’s office thanks 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.
