“Medical Examiners and Coroners are a cornerstone of the criminal justice system.  Informed decision-making, appropriate selection of cases for autopsy, proper handling of evidence at the scene and in the morgue, careful and complete forensic examination of the body by appropriately trained physicians, and thorough documentation of findings are keys to an efficient, fair criminal justice system.

As in any science, quality begins with the identification and consistent application of evidence-based polices and standards.”
