Born to Burn – Arson for Profit

Wednesday, April, 26 2023 (3:00pm - 5:00pm) (Ballroom 2)

Born to Burn – Arson for Profit is a course designed to evaluate the process of investigating, documenting and working complex arson cases, and arson for profit investigations involving multiple people.  This class is geared toward fire investigators, law enforcement, SIU members and those who may find themselves working a complex arson for profit investigation.  It provides information for the investigator to begin to collect evidence concerning fires that appear to be accidental, and to look for commonalties between the circumstances and people involved.  This will allow the investigator to then determine the scope and breadth of their investigation.  It is based on real-life investigations.
