Arson Liaison

The Arson Liaison, Christie J. Foster, is responsible for the screening and review of a variety of criminal offenses that meet the general statutory description of Arson. These include: intentionally starting a fire or causing an explosion that endangers life or property, or for the purpose of collecting insurance; arson for hire; and arson as a hate crime. In addition to prosecution efforts, the Liaison also provides a broad range of advice and assistance to local law enforcement agencies, especially the Louisville Metro Arson Squad, including in-depth fire scene investigations, legal support for subpoenas, court orders and search warrants, as well as conducting witness and suspect interviews.
