In the past, the Sheriff’s Office was the lead agency for a county-wide fire investigation team. Unfortunately, over the years, team coordination dwindled. This is not to say fires were not investigated; just a lack of coordination. In 2021, we reinstated the leadership and coordination of the team which includes members from the Sheriff’s Office, Monroe County Prosecutor’s Office, Michigan State Police, Monroe City Public Safety, Frenchtown Fire, Bedford Fire, and Monroe Township fire departments. The team meets every quarter to coordinate continued training and update on the open fire investigations.
