Sheriff Marin County In Partnership With Our Communities

Coroner Division

On January 3, 2011, the operations of the Marin County Coroner's Office became a function on the Marin County Sheriff's Office. During this consolidation of services the Sheriff's Office Coroner Division was created. The Coroner Division is a component of the Sheriff's Office Administration and Support Services Bureau. The Coroner Division is located at 1600 Los Gamos Dr., Suite #205 in San Rafael, and consists of one Chief Deputy Coroner, three Coroner Investigators, and one Office Assistant.

It is the mission of the Coroner Division to provide competent and timely law enforcement and scientific investigations into deaths occurring within the County of Marin to provide timely and accurate answers to survivors with regard to the deaths of their loved ones. The Coroner Division conducts their investigations to determine the cause, manner, and circumstances of deaths meeting criteria as defined in 27491 of the California Government Code.

Frequently Asked Questions following a death and subsequent involvement of the Coroner are addressed in the Coroner Division's Survivor Guidelines Information Pamphlet, which can be accessed via the provided link listed below.
