  • Local arson issue

    Hi, so i my area we have been having an arson issue, we have attended over 35 fires their in the last 3 months, we know who it is, police know who it is but are powerless, most of the time they are burning bins, stealing couches, bush etc. most of the time it is at the local skate park on down in the bush near the water, any ideas?

    Cheers

      Oh novel idea from another agency.

      When you are called for a fire,,,

      Have pd go directly to that persons house,

      See if the person is there!! if not you know the person is out and about,

      Or best, if the person comes walking up smelling like smoke!!!

        Local council have put cameras in the area but of course the skate park is a blind spot
        these kids are known to police, because in Australia the police is ran by the state not the county. we have a day time police station with (2 cars) and at night the closest police station is 30min away response time, but as most of our area is poor it?s not uncommon for police to take 4hours + these kids like I said have lit multiple Fires at the state park all damaging property (bins and stolen stuff from the local op shop) and have lit about 3-5 fires at the water front and have set off 1 IED (Believed to be them) we have even caught them returning to the scene multiple times and we let the police know it?s the usual suspects. We are heading into our fire season now we haven?t had any substantial rain this year and we have had days where the fires are lit on a 34+ degree C day (94 F) and decent winds the skate park backs on the bush and we have had multiple times were we have had to chase it in the bush.

                So who is the agency responsible for investigating the fires and arrest?

                At the end of the day they are the agency responsible for determining how the criminal process will be pursued.
                Train to fight the fires you fight.

                  Who is responsible for investigating and prosecuting fire/arson related crimes in your state? Here in the US it falls under a Fire Marshal, which in some cases can be an extension of Law Enforcement (such as the State Police Fire Marshal.) Have you contacted them?
