A Message from Chief Jason Patt

Jason Patt

Welcome to the website of the Lake County Coroner’s Office. The men and women of the Coroner’s Office are honored to serve the citizens of Lake County with honesty and integrity. 

The department is made up of nine sworn law enforcement officers, one forensic toxicologist, an administrative assistant, and an autopsy technician. These individuals assist with investigating approximately 6,000 deaths per year in Lake County. We are very proud of the way we handle all death investigations with care, compassion, and understanding.

A great deal of pride is taken in being transparent with the community, and we appreciate your trust and support. The department enjoys having cooperative partnerships that have been developed with various groups and organizations.

I am honored to serve as the Chief of the Lake County Coroner’s Office, and I invite everyone to look through our website and use all the resources we offer.

If I, or any member of our department may be of any assistance, please do not hesitate to contact us at any time.

Be safe everyone,

Jason Patt
