Soon after Mark Hutchinson entered law enforcement in 1989, he came to a frustrating realization: too much of police work was reactive rather than proactive.
“My first experience with a traffic fatality was haunting and unforgettable,” Mark recalls. “A boy named Matthew, just 10 years old, was unbelted in the back seat of a car being driven by his father, who was legally drunk. When I arrived at the scene, I worked to keep Matthew alive as long as I could – but he died in my arms before the paramedics reached us. I had vivid dreams about Matthew for months. Every detail, over and over. I knew that his death could have been prevented.”
Mark vowed to help stop traffic fatalities before they happen by making safety his life’s work. Founding Blue Line Solutions achieved his vision of finding a proactive way to save lives.

With more than 15 years of experience in law enforcement, Cam Reed has had the unenviable duty while working on crash scenes of bringing bad news to families.
“As a crash reconstructionist, I have knocked on many doors at all hours of the day and night to tell someone that their loved one was involved in a traffic crash and would not be coming home,” he shares. “Traffic enforcement is one of the few things that a law enforcement officer can do to prevent a tragedy before it occurs. At Blue Line Solutions, we save lives on our roadways – not just in one city, county or state but across several states. If just one life is saved, it is well worth the effort.”
