The Beaverton Police Department has partnered with the 911 Cell Phone Bank and is now accepting donations of cell phones to benefit victims of domestic violence, sexual assault, stalking, human trafficking and other unsafe situations.
Cell phones—even without a service plan—may still be able to call 911 in the event of an emergency. These emergency 911 cell phones are an important part of overall safety plans for individuals who may need help and cannot get to any other phone. They provide a critical link between a person in an unsafe situation and law enforcement/emergency services.
As our building is currently closed to the public due to COVID-19, we are currently unable to accept donations of cell phones. We will be happy to accept donations again once our building reopens.
There is no need to include car chargers, accessories or the operating manual.
Phones will be cleared of all personal information. Cell phones that are not working or unable to dial 911 are recycled according to EPA standards.
Are you someone who has safety concerns due to domestic violence, sexual assault, stalking, human trafficking, or another unsafe situation?
If so, an emergency 911 cell phone may be an important part of your overall safety plan.
Free 911 cell phones are available at the Beaverton Police Department.
You do not need to file a police report to access this program.
