Austin PD Officer Jason Borne’s passion for public service drives him to help citizens find long-term solutions that improve their lives
By Rachel Zoch for PoliceOne
Every cop knows there’s no such thing as “a routine traffic stop.” But when Austin PD Officer Jason Borne responded to a call this summer about a pedestrian in a busy roadway, he had no idea it would become an opportunity to make a big difference for a struggling single mother of two.
Drivers had called to report a woman walking on a busy stretch of highway frontage road in Borne’s patrol area. They were having to swerve around her, creating a traffic hazard in addition to endangering her life.
Borne pulled up as the woman – who was pushing her 2-year-old daughter in a stroller – turned into a parking lot. He says he got out of the car “in 100 percent in cop mode,” putting on a stern face and thinking of the potential for a pedestrian fatality.
“My first thought was, this is really stupid to be pushing a stroller with your back to traffic on a highway frontage road,” he said.
He got out of the cruiser and began a conversation with the woman, Lisa, who was dripping sweat in the 95-degree Texas heat. She told him she was on her way to the grocery store after taking her little girl to the dentist.
Borne started by warning her that it was extremely dangerous to walk in the road, especially with her back to traffic – even more so with a child – and he suggested that she get a bigger stroller with all-terrain tires to manage the grassy areas where there was no sidewalk.
And then it hit him: She wasn’t walking along the highway in August by choice. She was exhausted and trying to do the best she could.
“After saying that, I wish I could’ve taken it back, because it’s really easy for me to say when I can afford to go buy a stroller,” Borne said. “If she’s in a position where she’s required to walk, she’s probably not in the best financial situation to have spare money to go buy a stroller.”
