WALTON COUNTY, Fla. — A boy named Billy from Walton County, Florida, called 911 to invite deputies to Thanksgiving dinner – and put a smile on everyone’s faces as a result.

The Walton County Sheriff’s Office, while it doesn’t encourage this use of 911 in the future, was pleased to take Billy’s call.

“With all the bad calls we take on a daily basis, this one was a welcomed happy call that made all of us smile,” Lead Communications Officer Monica Webster said.

Billy got a visit from deputies Damon Byrd and Aaron Etheridge, a cool picture behind the wheel of a police car and a sheriff’s badge.
