Home > Departments > Investigative Unit
One of the primary responsibilities of the unit is to collect enough information from the initial death report to determine if the case needs to come into the CCMEO or if it can be released. Once a death is determined to be a medical examiner’s case, the investigations unit determines whether or not a scene visit is required. Once established Investigators gather data to help the pathologists formulate the
cause and manner of death. Investigative information includes the Investigator's report, scene photographs, medical records, police records, trace evidence findings, consultant’s findings, special test results, etc.
