Arson Awareness Week
Arson Awareness Week - May 3-9, 2009
The goal of this year's AAW, May 3-9, is to focus public attention on arson for profit. By drawing people's attention to the alarming statistics about arson for profit, we hope to expand the resources and support necessary to reduce this crime. There are many motives for arson - the crime of deliberately and maliciously setting fire. Arson for profit, or economic arson, is when businesses or individuals set fires to reduce financial loss, recoup initial investments, or dispose of depreciated assets usually for a payout from insurance companies
Arson for profit is insurance fraud, a criminal method of obtaining money from a fire loss policy. The losses for arson are staggering!
