Patrol Lieutenant Jakie Christy and  Investigator Craig Bolby. The task force is called out to investigate all suspicious fires to attempt to determine the "origin" of the fire. They also assist in interviewing of witnesses and suspects and are a great asset in prosecuting offenders. Each of these team members have had extensive training in Fire Investigations and are continuing their education with a goal of "State Certification." At their disposal is the "Arson Van" which is fully equipped with necessary tools and equipment to investigate "Fire scenes" and properly collect evidence for future prosecutions.
