The Jefferson County Coroner’s Office is created by the Colorado Constitution and mandated to establish the cause and manner of death for people who die suddenly or unexpectedly, or who are not attended by a physician at the time of death. The Coroner’s Office is also required to investigate deaths from accidents, acts of violence and other special circumstances.

Our team is quite small, but we are blessed with a dedicated group of well trained and committed deputy coroners, a wonderful support staff and our extraordinary forensic pathologists. Together, we dedicate our work to our decedents and their loved ones.
