Add Investigation Report from Incident

The optional Arson/Investigation Report may be used whenever Cause of Ignition (NFIRS-2 E1) is coded as “intentional,” or as “under investigation” without any distinction made as to whether or not a crime has occurred, or a determination of criminal intent. The Arson/Investigation Report may also be used when the fire is under investigation or in cases where the cause is “Undetermined after investigation.” The Arson/Investigation Report can also be used to document juvenile-set fires, whether determined to be intentional or not. This information will permit analysis of juvenile firesetting trends including intervention strategies and recidivism.
