Los Santos County Department of Coroner
"Law and Science Serving the Community"
The Los Santos Department of Coroner is a faction that focuses on primarily the role-play surrounding medical examiners and forensic investigations on death. Our core goal is to provide the most realistic role-play possible with our script limitations and imagination. We aim to portray the standard set in place by Los Angeles County Department and fellow departments world-wide.
The Los Santos Department of Coroner was founded in 1982 which serves all of San Andreas, this includes all of it's surrounding counties. On a daily basis, the Los Santos Department of Coroner is known for assisting both Los Santos Police Department and Los Santos County Sheriff's Department in providing detailed reports on bodies that may have resulted from homicide or accidental death.
The Current Chief Medical Examiner running the Los Santos location is Andy Smith. Dr. Smith has a history in Forensic Science and has worked at the department for over fourteen years. The Assistant Chief Medical Examiner was appointed in 2015 by Dr. Smith. The Assistance Chief Medical Examiner is Isaiah Ray. Dr. Ray has been employed by the department for over ten years and has had a lengthy but extremely successful career with the department.
The mission of the Department of Coroner is to follow the mandated laws of San Andreas to investigate and determine all manners of death. This ranging from homicides, suicides, accidental death, and natural deaths. All investigations that require law intervention are forwarded to the discovering departments.
Our goal is not to only serve and provide detailed reports to law enforcement agencies. But it is to also provide closure in families and members of the public. We strive towards providing respectful hospice in body storage for the dead until their final resting grounds. We treat each guest with the proper amount of respect and decency that any person truly deserves. This means we provide not only storage, but we also provide death certifications, cremating, and funeral arrangements for those of the dead if requested by the families.
The objective of identification also falls under our core mission. This is done through the means of matching the identification to the decedents, these are completed during the process of collection. We conduct detailed DNA's testing to ensure we can match our decedents with full names and alert the next of kin. In-some cases we will not be able to identify bodies if no information has been previous collected or found on the decedents.
Our current location is located in Los Santos on Crusade Road 1959, Strawberry, Los Santos, SA

The Chief is in charge of the overall welfare of both the department and the members regardless of rank. The Chief works in both the field and from the desk, managing members in the field when needed, but also performing administrative work from the desk. Some of the administrative duties of the Chief are keeping the website ((forums)) in check, managing the public image of the department, managing departmental protocols, making budget decisions, and writing administrative documentation such as the promotions of members at the end of each month. There can only be one Chief.

The main job of Supervising Medical Examiners is to handle and manage the day to day activities of the members below their rank. They're to handle situations when the Assistant Chief or Chief are not available. They're to manage the Senior Medical Examiners and Medical Examiners; helping them handle their duties while on-duty. While not on-duty, the Supervising Medical Examiners handles the brunt of the administrative work within the department, from handling the website to helping the Assistant Chief or Chief draft and finalize new protocols/parts of the department.
Senior Medical Examiners and Medical Examiners
These ranks are the backbone of the entire department, as they make up the highest percentage of members. Without them out in the field handling day to day duties, the department would not be able to sustain itself.

Senior Medical Examiners are allowed to handle supervisory situations when a Supervising Medical Examiner is not present. However, once the situation has been cleared, they must report to a Supervising Medical Examiner about the incident that took place.
