The Arson Squad investigates fires or where an explosion has occurred. The squad also proactively targets and investigates serial arsonists with the aim of reducing the incidents of arson.
Arson Information Network
The Arson Information Network (AIN) is a partnership of the WA Police Force, the Department of Fire and Emergency Services, and the Department of Environment and Conservation, to promote arson awareness to the community of Western Australia.
Information from the community is paramount to the success of identifying arsonists and implementing the AIN in 2006 has led to faster response times and more charges for arson offences.
