Venue:  University of Central Lancashire - Foster Lecture Theatre 4 (Foster Building)


Steve Darby MBE Incident Intelligence Officer for Lancashire Fire and Rescue Service are giving a two hour presentation entitled ‘How Ad Hoc Tests Can Support Fire Investigations, Prosecutions, The Coronial Process and Community Fire Safety’.


Due to the nature of Steve’s role he is often called upon to present evidence in criminal court cases and in Coroners court. Steve has carried out many ad hoc tests to support his investigations and hypothesis as to the cause and development of fires, which have always been well received in the criminal justice system and coronial process to assist judges; juries and the Coroners understand the cases being presented.


In the presentation, Steve Darby will be presenting a number of ad hoc tests to show how these tests can support fire investigations for the criminal justice system, coronial process and for community fire safety.


Steve has worked for Lancashire Fire & Rescue Service for 28 years, having worked as an operational firefighter, Leading firefighter, Sub Officer, Watch Manager A and Watch Manager B. Steve has also held a staff position at Service HQ, has been a trainer at the service training centre, worked in Technical Fire Safety and for the past 8 years has been an Incident Intelligence officer (IIO). Part of that role is fire investigation, dealing with the higher profile incidents such as fatal fires, fires of high financial loss / large scale fires, racially motivated or hate crime fires, where there is a suspect in the early stages or where operational officers request support on investigations.


This lecture is the fifth of a number of free events that are run by the IFE in conjunction with The University of Central Lancashire during each academic year. They provide recognised CPD for IFE members and are also open and free for anyone to attend for their personal development.

 This particular presentation has been awarded two hours CPD by the IFE.

Please feel free to pass this on to any staff within your organisation, or partnership organisations, that can attend and would benefit.
