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.
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.
The Coroner Division is open to the public Monday through
Friday: 8:00am to 12:00pm & 1:00pm to 4:00pm
On occasion, Coroner Division personnel may be away from the
office conducting investigations or other follow up. If you need to urgently
speak with an investigator, please contact the Marin County Sheriff’s Office
Communications Center and ask for an investigator to be paged, (415)
