The fire investigation is a crucial part of the process of determining if a fire is youth-set and identifying the responsible youth so the proper agencies can intervene. The fire investigator plays a pivotal role in this process. If the fire investigator does not conduct the investigation in accordance with the law, there can be serious repercussions for the investigator, his/her agency, the case, and the persons involved, including the youth. By definition, investigations of youth-set fires involve minors and, therefore, there are number of legal issues that arise that the fire investigator may not normally encounter.

This self-paced program covers fundamental legal aspects of investigating youth-set fires, including the juvenile justice system, legalities of interviews and interrogations, arson statutes, search and seizure, and confidentiality.
