I dont think so.
Dipti nailed this one!

I doubt, Sybil. Though I share my passwords with my wife.
A court order is required to access private and personal information that is password protected. There is a secret judge who will rubber stamp such requests from law enforcement allowing an invasion of privacy that in most instances, is unknown to the subject.
The abuse of this practice by law enforcement is why new phones have an encryption option that protects the information the user INTENDED to remain private.
Clearly the intent as you describe is pure, however the documented abuse by law enforcement is inexcusible...but the justification is "it keeps us safe."
There exits a universal code for service purposes that is known to every technician at cell phone kiosk at the mall. This code how ever does not provide access to personal data such as the call list or contact list.
Some citizens and locals have elected to use RFI tags that can be read by emergency personell that contains medical and emergency contact information. Find out if the emergency responders in your area use RFI or code readers.
NOTE: Use of RFI personal ID tags is a requirment in most sanctioned marathons for the very purpose you describe. The technology is avaiable to solve this problem. There are minor protections in place to keep cell phone data private. If you use 1,2,3,4 as the password, that would certainly be minor protection.
I have no idea on this question, Sybil, and will look forward to seeing some responses.
