About Us

The Coroner’s Office provides information to and works closely with other state and federal agencies (Health Department, Donor Alliance, Rocky Mountain Lions Eye Bank, OSHA, FAA, NTSB, Consumer Product Safety Commission, Harvard CTE study), local physicians, hospitals, law enforcement agencies, district attorneys, public defenders, private attorneys, and insurance companies. Coroners also provide learning opportunities for many agencies, which facilitates coordinated investigations. Schools and community organizations, as well as hospitals and nursing care facilities, also receive education about the role of the Coroners Office.

As an impartial, independent agency, our mission is to serve the public; by providing the citizens of Douglas County, medical professionals, and members of the justice system accurate, scientific, and unbiased medical-based determinations of cause and manner of death in cases falling under the jurisdiction of the office. To this end, we strive for nothing less than excellence in practice, integrity, compassion, and continuous advancement in the field.

Deliver scientific-based truth through exceptional and professional medicolegal investigation.
