Mission Statement

The Lake County Coroner's Office exists to serve the community by providing timely Medico-legal death investigations in a professional and courteous manner, while ensuring the highest level of compassion, dignity and respect for the deceased and their families.
Through collaborative efforts that value recognized best practices, advances in technology and training, our efforts will serve those who can no longer serve themselves.  We will also care for the living by providing historical data, identifying trends and offering recommendations to help prevent deaths of similar circumstances.  Central to our mission are the values that guide our work and decisions and help us contribute to the quality of life in Lake County.
