Case Management Department
The Case Management Unit 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 process case work efficiently and effectively, while keeping the families well informed during the process in order to minimize stress during a difficult time.
The Case Managers personally handle all the paperwork for each and every case. When the Pathologists, Toxicologists and Forensic Technicians have completed their work, the Case Managers prepare all death certificates, supplemental death certificates, and case reports so that the Coroner can sign them. These forms are then electronically delivered to the Vital Statistics Office at the Public Health Department 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.
