(BROWNSTOWN) - The Jackson County Sheriff's Department and Turning Point Domestic Violence Services will be collecting cell phones and cell phone accessories at the Sheriff's Department building at this year's Jackson County Fair from July 23 - 29th.

All cell phones, regardless of their age or model, can be dropped off at the Sheriff's building. The phones will then be passed on to Turning Point.

Turning Point converts old cell phones into emergency phones that can be given to victims of domestic violence, which allows a victim to call 9-1-1. The phones are only used for that purpose and no other types of calls can be made from them. All stored information is cleared from the phone before it is used as an emergency cell phone.
