Dan Billington retires from Sheriff's Department to become a full time reconstructionist

pdf Dan Billington's CV.pdf

Dan Billington of Crashteams GREAT LAKES retires from Sheriff's Department after a successfull 15 year long career during which time he reconstructed and analyzed over 500 traffic accidents.

Increased demand for his accident reconstruction skills have caused Mr. Billington to leave his law enforcement position to further his success as a accident reconstruction expert with Crashteams.


His Story:

"After 15 years in law enforcement it became a personal goal to begin a business as a private Accident Reconstructionist.  The prospect of transitioning to private work from a government job was fearsome to say the least.  

Many, like myself, begin a career in law enforcement with a limited skill-set, and as a result often find ourselves at the end of that career looking for a way to fit into the private sector.  Generally we are left with no direction, essentially lost.  Crashteams challenged me to make the leap, helping me to secure clientele and a caseload which would help me to continue to support my family.  

I am certain, were it not for the friends and business associates I have come to know through Crashteams, I would not have had the confidence and peace of mind necessary to begin a new career in the challenging field of accident reconstruction."
Dan Billington - Crashteams GREAT LAKES


We are looking forward to working with Mr. Billington in the future.
