About the Yolo County Sheriff's Department 

The Yolo County Sheriff’s Department includes the coroner function. According to the Yolo County Sheriff’s Department, it “is divided into three major divisions: Administrative and Support Services, Detention Services, and Field Operations. The Administrative Division is the central coordinating point for the Sheriff-Coroner, Undersheriff, and the department’s management staff. The Field Operations Division is the uniformed patrol force of the county. This Division also maintains the Civil Section which works in conjunction with the Courts to serve the public. The Detention Division, under the direction of the Yolo County Sheriff, is charged with the responsibility of maintaining a jail for the county.

The Coroner’s Section is located in the Administration building of the Yolo County Sheriff’s Department. Coroner personnel investigate all sudden, violent, and unusual deaths that occur in Yolo County. The primary duty of the Coroner is to determine the cause and manner of death through on-scene investigation, examination of evidence, interviews, medical records, toxicological analysis, forensic pathology examinations, and autopsies.

In addition, the Coroner’s Section determines positive identification of decedents, issues the certificate of death, provides notification to the next-of-kin, collects and processes evidence, and secures the decedent’s property. Duties are performed using forensic photography, forensic radiology, sample collection for toxicological analysis, and by completing a detailed investigative report. Courtroom testimony may be necessary in criminal cases
