Brazoria County Constable hands out gift cards instead of tickets

Most of the time when you get pulled over by a police officer it is because you broke a traffic law.  But, Brazoria County Constable James Brawner is pulling people over for different reasons.

Brawner and his deputies are driving around Pearland looking for a few good drivers to reward their safe driving with gift certificates.

Brawner calls it his “Get Caught Doing Something Right’ campaign.  The purpose of the campaign is to reinforce safe driving habits and to recognize those who make the roadways safe, with a hope to reduce traffic tickets, car accidents and to ultimately save lives.

“We like to build relationships within our communities to reinforce that not every encounter with a police officer has to be negative and in my office, we do recognize our citizens that do the right thing and want to thank them,” says Brawner. “Communication with our community should be positive and not always punitive in nature.”

Brawner hopes to continue the campaign throughout the year.
