Bobby J. Mullinax began his law enforcement career in 2007 with the Spartanburg (S.C.) Police Department. Starting his career like most officers he was assigned to the uniform patrol division and quickly excelled in both traffic enforcement and criminal patrol.
While assigned to the patrol division he made numerous arrests of violent felons including individuals wanted for kidnapping, home invasions, armed robberies, and weapon and drug violations. Most of these apprehensions were the direct result of traffic stops.
Due to his abilities in traffic enforcement and collision investigation he was transferred to the department's traffic division where he was twice awarded the MADD DUI Hero award for his efforts in impaired driving enforcement.
While in the traffic division he received advanced training in collision investigation and reconstruction and became a lead investigator on the department's reconstruction unit, reconstructing numerous fatal and great bodily injury crashes, as well as assisting in the forensic mapping of homicide and other felonious crimes.
In 2016, he left Spartanburg Police Department becoming a full-time collision reconstruction instructor where he has since logged over 3,000 instructional hours and created nearly 600 hours worth of reconstruction training curricula. He has also spoken at numerous conferences around United States and has been published in the Accident Reconstruction Journal, Collision Magazine, and on the PhotoModeler website blog.
In 2018 he was named a "PhotoModeler Ambassador" which is a distinction only held by eight individuals in the world.
