Governor Proclaims Arson Awareness Week in Michigan

May 8, 2012

It’s Arson Awareness Week in Michigan.

Gov. Rick Snyder says he wants to focus public attention on the seriousness of fire-setting by young people and the importance of preventing such behavior through collaborative community efforts.

This year’s theme is: “Prevent Youth Fire-Setting.”

The FBI’s Uniform Crime Reporting Program report says juveniles accounted for 46 percent of arson arrests from 2005 to 2010.

Arson Awareness Week in Michigan runs Sunday through Saturday, May 6-12.
