The Beverly Hills Fire Department (BHFD) has three administrative Fire Investigators and four Shift Investigators on staff that work on a rotating shift schedule. A Fire Investigator is called to the scene of a fire to determine its origin and cause. BHFD Fire Investigators are highly-trained specialists that use a systematic approach and knowledge of fire science to conduct their investigation. BHFD, along with the Beverly Hills Police Department, gather evidence and conduct interviews concerning fires. The information and evidence collected is analyzed to determine a fire's origin and cause. Fire Investigators must maintain and file detailed reports on each investigation conducted.
