Investigation Insights

Arson is a crime that costs everyone, not just the victim.  Arson and fire insurance fraud result in higher insurance rates and cost policy holders billions of dollars annually.  The citizens of the community are the people who suffer.  We ask that anyone with information on any fire contact your local fire department, law enforcement officer, or call the Arson Hotline at
1-800-382-4628.  Help fight the high cost of arson.
