Abstract

This project will examine the use of arson in homicide cases in Australia since 1990. It will involve a partnership between ACART and the Australian Institute of Criminology’s National Homicide Monitoring Program in order to examine the link between crime scene indicators, firesetter characteristics and the Multi- rajectory Theory of Adult Firesetting treatment program. The project has relevance to treatment providers, investigators and researchers by linking all three in a comprehensive assessment of arson associated fires and the offenders who perpetrate them.

Multidimensional statistical analysis will be used to identify themes and logistic regression will be employed to identify relevant predictor variables. Results will be of benefit to investigators and mental health professionals, as well as informing prevention efforts.
