Summary

Aim

This report identifies factors associated with the risk of arson in schools by examining the nature of school arson incidents from police records and a reviewing literature in this area. A survey of schools was conducted to examine the exact relationship between the factors identified and the likelihood that schools in NSW would be subject to arson.
