In accordance with Governor Abbott’s “Open Texas” executive order, the City of Baytown will be re-opening public facilities in a phased process. Following CDC guidelines, all City events, programming, and City venue rentals remain cancelled or postponed until further notice. City services will continue to run in a modified format through digital or other distance means. Beginning May 11th, we will begin providing curb side and appointment-only services at our public facilities while avoiding fully opening government facilities to the public. We will continue to keep you updated on our social media channels.

Arson Investigation

Press Enter to show all options, press Tab go to next option



All fires have a cause.
Some are truly accidental.
Others are started on purpose.
When fires are started maliciously it is called arson.

The objective of a fire investigation is to determine the origin and cause of a fire. In order to determine the origin and cause of a fire, interviews must be conducted, evidence collected, and comprehensive reports of all findings must be prepared. If, during the investigation, any criminal activity is uncovered, the investigator must take action against those responsible. An investigator, who has reason to believe that arson was committed, is obligated to develop the case to its fullest extent. This may include the filing of criminal charges and serving as a witness for prosecution.

All of our Investigators are Certified Peace Officers by the State of Texas with the same powers as any other law enforcement Officer, in Texas.

If you need to speak with one of our Arson Investigators, please call 281-422-2311.
