It’s not often that I post on my blog asking for your help as a resident. This is an important enough issue that I need your support.
We believe that we have an arsonist in Provo that has been taking part in very destructive behaviors. This is very serious.
I need your help. I need the eyes and ears of our 115,000 residents to assist in our boots-on-the-ground operation. If you see suspicious activities happening in your neighborhood – call 911. This is particularly important in areas that have existing structures that are dilapidated, vacant and in need of significant repair or demolition.
As a city, we’ve engaged our neighborhood chairs, property owners, and are marshaling other resources. We’re adding bodies to our dispatch and staffing up on officers to patrol the city and be on alert.
Again, if you see anything suspicious – call 911. If you have non-emergency tips you’d like to share, call 801.852.7400. Any witnesses with information are asked to contact the Fire Marshal’s office at: 801-852-6321.

Most of the activities are happening in the early morning hours between 1:00-5:00 am.
There is a reward of $5,000 for a tip that leads to an arrest of conviction.
