Course Description - The investigator will focus on the evidence presented at the scene, the interviews, neighborhood canvass and other information gained through investigation and interviews that may lead to the fire being determined an incendiary fire instead of accidental, as designed by the perpetrator. The key to investigations can often be interviews conducted and determining if deception can be found. We look at trends in fires and specific ignition sequences used. The need to understand patterns in fires in their areas, and determine whether there are consistencies in the people and companies involved in these trends and patterns. It is relevant to anyone who must determine whether the interviewee is providing the truth, or they are being deceptive when working fire investigations and potential arson.
