    Default Arson Canines

    I'm studying Fire Science at Lake Superior State University and hope to do a semester-long research project on canine use in arson investigation. If any of you know of resources, books, articles, anything that may be of use to me, and you are willing to share that information, that would be great. Thanks Alot

    Contact your local State Fire Marshal's office. They will be able to help you.

    This when we got back from Maine in 2000. I've got some others somewhere, if I can find them. I lost a hard drive a couple of years ago, and I lost a bunch of 'em.

    This was a fire from a year or two ago. He did his job on this one. Six samples positive form the floor of the fire room, 2 from uninvolved areas of the house, and a positive sample from the suspects shoe.

    I recommend ATF or Joe Toscano, former vp of american reinsurance, largely credited with starting the accelerant program in the US. He's with Chilworth Technology out of New Jeresy. He's credited with a 98% conviction rate for arson crimes in the state of connecticut which is beyond belief.
