Welcome to Coroner Talk™  – I’d like to take a minute and tell you a little about our community and what you can expect from this site. Coroner Talk™  is much more than just a website. We are a community of professionals in the field of death investigation. Whether you’re a coroner, a member of local police or county law enforcement, an EMS professional, or medical examiner – or frankly, anyone in between, Coroner Talk™  is the right community for you.

We provide training and resources to coroners and death investigators by and from professionals around the world, in a peer-to-peer training environment. I recognized that the training available for coroners and small department investigators was limited by resources such as time away from the department and expense. So, I developed Coroner Talk™.

We provide training and resources right here from the website through:

  • Blog posts
  • Articles
  • Downloadable resources
  • A private FB group forum
  • As well as through our weekly podcast where we talk with professionals from across the globe on topics that affect your life and job every day.

Coroner Talk™ podcast is the only podcast in iTunes dedicated to the men and women in the field of death investigation.

So again, welcome to the community – I invite you to spend a few minutes looking around and seeing just what is available to you and how you can most benefit from the Coroner Talk™ community.

I would also invite you to subscribe to our weekly newsletter and podcast – which you can find links to – to the right of the screen.
