The Role of Coroner’s Officers

Coroner’s Officers receive reports of deaths in the community, hospitals, other care settings, and state detention.

The Coroner has a team of 7 investigative officers employed by Leicester City Council and are based at the Town Hall in Leicester. Coroner’s Officers receive reports of deaths in the community, hospitals, other care settings and state detention and make appropriate inquiries at the direction of the Coroner. One Coroner’s Officer will maintain responsibility for investigating a death from the initial report to the end of the Coroner’s involvement and will therefore be your single point of contact.
