Timothy D. Brown – My Story

Mr. Brown retired from the Michigan State Police in 2012 after nearly twenty-seven years of service. Shortly after enlistment in 1986, he pursued his interest in accident investigation with the agency. From 1987 through 1999 Mr. Brown conducted hundreds of “at-scene” crash investigations in the Detroit and Metropolitan area. In late 1999 he was selected as a member of the eight-man Crash Reconstruction Unit of the Michigan State Police. This appointment was his sole function and responsibility in the agency until his retirement in August, 2012.

Drawing on his twenty-four years of experience as a crash investigator in southeast Michigan, Mr. Brown provides expert services in the areas of Collision Analysis, Event Data Recorder (black box) Technology, and Forensic Mapping. His clients include Attorneys, Insurance Companies, and Commercial Fleet Carriers to name a few.

At the completion of a research project involving “black box technology” in 2009, Mr. Brown co-authored a paper that was later published in scientific journals.
