Cell Phone Drive to Benefit Victims of Crime

CellPhoneDriveNG-FINAL

The Victims Assistance Units from the Castle Rock Police Department, Parker Police Department and the Lone Tree Police Departments are joining forces to help raise awareness of victim’s rights during a cell phone drive to benefit victims of crime and the elderly. Gently used cell phones can be donated to participating local police departments during National Victim’s Rights week, Apr. 8-12, 2019.

The old cell phones will be checked for functionality and wiped of data if necessary. Phones that are disconnected from a cellular provider still have the ability to call 911. The phones will then be distributed to The Crisis Center, Douglas County Adult Protective Services and Aging Resources of Douglas County.

"The efforts of the Douglas County Law Enforcement Community in collecting phones for victims of domestic violence is an important way to increase victim safety and accessibility to police intervention,” said Jennifer Walker, Executive Director of The Crisis Center. “Many victims of domestic violence feel isolated from local resources. By donating a phone during Victim’s Rights’ Week, you are part of creating a safer community and saving lives. "

The cell phones can be dropped off at any of the locations below between the hours of 8 a.m. and 5 p.m., from Apr. 8-12, 2019. Please include chargers or extra batteries for the phones if possible. A donation form is available upon request for tax deduction purposes.

 

Drop-off locations:

Castle Rock Police Department

100 Perry Street


Parker Police Department

18600 Lincoln Meadows Parkway

 

Lone Tree Police Department

9220 Kimmer Drive, #120
