A 911 dispatcher in the Florida Panhandle received an unusual call from a boy 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.
Billy was paid “a special visit” by Deputy Damon Byrd and Deputy Aaron Ethridge, who gave him a sheriff’s badge and let him sit in their patrol cars.
