Stillwater Police giving out cell phones to domestic violence victims

STILLWATER, NY (NEWS10) – In severe domestic violent situations, sometimes a cell phone call is the only lifeline victims have.

That’s why a local police department wants to make sure everyone who might need one has one.

The Stillwater Police Department is giving out collected phones again Thursday as part of their ongoing effort.

Since 2003, they have given out nearly 5,000 phones to people and advocacy groups.

The effort continues this morning at 10am in honor of Domestic Violence Awareness Month.
