  • Ombudsman
    • The office of the Ombudsman was created to provide additional support to citizens with unresolved concerns. The Ombudsman is a neutral agent, who will field concerns, provide information, mediate conflict and investigate complaints. The Ombudsman will strive to improve information exchange and coordination between staff and interested parties.

Although the Ombudsman may offer a recommendation, the office has no authority to render a decision or reverse a decision made by staff. All referrals or contacts are documented in order to identify areas of improvement.

  • Missing Persons
    • Missing persons can be reported to the Office of the Medical Examiner as we are able to verify if the missing person is deceased, possibly listed as an unidentified, or confirm they are not at our office. We also can provide additional resources to families to assist with a missing person investigation. Missing persons will need to be reported to the police agency (city) in which they went missing. Prior to reporting the missing person to a police agency, you will need to check the local hospitals and jails. For assistance from the Office of the Medical Examiner to help the family with locating the appropriate police agency to contact, please contact:
