Coroner

Jim Allmon | Term: 2/11/2020-2024

Jim Allmon, County CoronerThe County Coroner shall be notified when any death in the county or the city may warrant a Medico-Legal death investigation. Once the death is reported to the Coroner’s Office, the Coroner will decide whether or not the death will be placed on a Medical Death Certificate (handled by the decedent’s physician) or a Coroner/Medical Examiner Death Certificate (handled by the Coroner). A Medico-Legal death investigation could include an autopsy, toxicology and review of medical records to determine the cause and manner of death. When the Coroner completes his/her investigation, the death certificate is filed with the local registrar, who then certifies it. The Coroner’s Office is a non-biased, stand-alone entity. By Illinois statute the County Coroner is a conservator of the peace, a law enforcement official, giving him/her the same powers as the Sheriff.
