Serial arson in the Netherlands and the difficulties faced by fire investigators

Journal article (Fire Risk Management, 10, 43-45)

When it comes to the criminal investigation of serial arson in the country, the ‘policy triangle’ of local public administration, police and the Department of Justice – the parties involved in investigations – often poses complex dilemmas in terms of decision-making. In addition, there is only limited experience of criminal investigation in cases of serial arson, and all too often the police investigate without specific prior knowledge. The authors continue to describe the characteristics of the problem of serial arson in the Netherlands, investigative dilemma's and the value of expert knowledge.
