Arson prevention

The Lincolnshire Arson Task Force aims to prevent arson across the county.

Arson presents a high risk of injury or death for the perpetrator or victim. As all emergency services respond to arson incidents, it also costs money.

The task force is a partnership between us and the police, which:

  • works with other agencies to reduce arson
  • ensures a targeted response to vehicle fires, anti-social behaviour and rural arson
  • raises public awareness of arson
  • provides intervention and training
  • records, analyses and shares data to assist in arson reduction
