Operation Nomad – Bushfire Arson (19-03)

Operation Nomad is the SAPOL response to the threat of bushfires in South Australia. This response is in support of the South Australian Fire Service. The Fire Danger Season can be an anxious time for many South Australians, especially those living or working in rural areas. Fires can be started by a range of causes, some natural and some accidental, but unfortunately a large number are deliberately lit. By being vigilant and reporting the signs of deliberately lit fires we can work together to stop arson burning a trail of destruction through our communities. Arsonists are known to often ignite small fires, practicing their methods before escalating to larger and potentially more devastating bushfires. What may appear to be a seemingly insignificant fire may hold vital evidence and demonstrate an arsonist’s pattern of crime. Police should be notified of ANY fire remnants you may see on walking trails, roadsides, in parks, etc. If you see signs of burnt out spot fires or anything suspicious – ring the police.
