       Our office is currently working on Accreditation by the International Association of Coroners and Medical Examiners. We continue to improve and update our skills with education yearly, and share a lot of information and experience within the office. We participate in the Child Death Review Team, The Suicide Awareness Program and the Drug Task Force.
