|Advanced Coroner Investigator|
The Douglas County Sheriff-Coroners Unit is made up of specially trained medical-legal death investigators to handle coroner cases that are suspicious, criminal in nature or that pose a potential health threat to the public.
Deputy Coroners attend specialized training to investigate suspected deaths. Deputy Coroners assigned to this unit spend time with the Washoe County Medical Examiner's Office in Reno, Nevada where they are introduced to autopsy protocols and detailed death investigations, which may include a training assignment with the Clark County Medical Examiner's Office in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Deputy Coroners will attend other specialized courses throughout their tenure as a Sheriff-Coroner Investigator.
