Viewing an Autopsy

Examinations performed on your jurisdiction’s cases may be attended by those agents directly involved in the investigation of the death. If you wish to attend an examination, please notify the central office ahead of time and we will make every effort to fit our schedule with yours. This is very important if you require extended travel time to reach our facility.

Most exams start after morning report which concludes around 08:30 (cases start at 08:00 on weekends and holidays). If you have not notified us in advance, you may be subject to a period of waiting until we can schedule your case or we may have already finished the exam before you arrive.

Homicides and infant cases have priority as the first cases of the day so rescheduling may be necessary.

The attendance of officers not directly involved in the investigation of the death is discouraged. If this is felt to be a valuable educational experience to their career, please make arrangements a few days in advance and we will try to accommodate you and the trainee attending an exam.
