Tackling in partnership

The fire service and police work together to tackle arson in our communities. 

Immediately following a deliberate fire, our officers work together to carry out their investigations to understand how the fire started and then gather evidence to ultimately catch those responsible. 

Arson is a crime, no matter how big or small, and it is something we take very seriously. It can blight neighbourhoods, cause fear in communities and can destroy homes, businesses and lives. 

With Cambridgeshire Constabulary, we together run a variety of operations to target specific areas or types of arson and work with those living in the community to educate and inform residents about arson. 

The best tools we have are our relationships with not just the police and partners agencies, but the people who live in the community. That is why we ask you to take responsibility to prevent arson and then report anything you see that is suspicious. 

Together, we can make Cambridgeshire a safer place to live and work.
