FIR 211 Investigation and Detection of Fire Incidents

 

This course examines the causes of incendiary and accidental fires. In the study of intentional fires and explosions the scientific method is the analytic process now used that leads to accurate and defensible conclusions in fire investigation. The course will focus on the application of this process and create a sound basis for the student to use when evaluating fire scenes, preparing reports, gathering evidence and offering testimony in an arson investigation case. Topics discussed include: investigation techniques, interrogation, reports, court procedures, testimony, legal opinions and processing of criminal evidence. State and local statutes related to the crime of arson are examined.
