View of Management in Fire Investigation Units, Volume II: Issues and Trends for the 90's   [open pdf - 505KB]

Fifteen fire investigation agencies from Maryland to Washington participated in a U.S. Fire Administration project that provided management assistance on fire and arson investigation. Earlier research funded by the U.S. Fire Administration indicated that many local and state agencies responsible for arson control wanted hands-on assistance in defining a better system for investigating and prosecuting incendiary fires. TriData Corporation of Arlington, as the contractor for the project, conducted management "audits" for each of the sites and prepared individualized reports documenting strengths and problem areas as well as what measures were recommended to improve overall investigation procedures and capabilities, and to enhance coordination among investigation agencies.
