What Is the Blue Ribbon Arson Committee (BRAC)?

The Blue Ribbon Arson Committee (BRAC) was developed in 1973 to assist investigators in the state of Ohio. In 1978, BRAC started Reward Fund which offers financial incentives for information that leads to convictions involving the crime of ARSON.

Since the program’s inception, 483 rewards have been issued with $561,600 being paid out as rewards. Approximately, 635 fires have been solved with over 200 of these fires being attempts to defraud the insurance industry. The savings to the industry is in excess of $8.5 million. Several recent reward recipients have helped stop serial arson issues in their cities!
