About Us » Departments » Front Office Staff

The administrative area of the Coroner's Office is responsible for records management, phone interactions with families and other agencies, and the production of death certificates and coroner's reports. The main goal is to keep the families well informed and comfortable in order to minimize stress during a difficult time.

The front office Case Secretary personally handles all the paperwork for each and every case. When the Pathologists, Toxicologists and Forensic Technicians have completed their work, the Case Secretaries prepare all death certificates and supplements so that the Coroner can sign them. These forms are then hand delivered to Vital Statistics so that a final death certificate can be processed.

All Coroner Reports are a matter of public record and are released to those who submit a request.
