​The Fire, Arson, and Explosive Investigations Bureau​

The Investigations Branch determines the origin and cause of fires and conducts explosion analysis. In cases of arson, the Investigations Branch conducts a criminal investigation and presents the case to the State Attorney’s Office for prosecution. Every Investigator assigned to this branch is a sworn law enforcement deputy and is certified through the State of Florida, the International Association of Arson Investigators (IAAI), and the National Association of Fire Investigators (NAFI). Investigators may testify in both Federal and State Courts, hearings, and depositions. ​

The investigation bureau is comprised of a supervisor and five full-time fire/arson/explosive investigators with over 60-years of combined experience. Each investigator is a fully sworn law enforcement officer that has the authority to carry firearms, arrest perpetrators, and present arson based criminal cases for prosecution to the State Attorney's Office. They answer the call of 50 Palm Beach County Fire Rescue fire stations covering 1,769 square miles including all of unincorporated Palm Beach County and 19 municipalities - 24 hours a day, 365 days a year!
