Death Investigators
Available to public are monthly and yearly activity reports. Death Certificates must be obtained through the Register of Deeds Office.

The staff of the Portage County Coronerís Office is involved in a wide variety of activities commensurate with the mission of this office, including responding to and investigating the scene of death, ordering postmortem examinations, certifying the cause and manner of death and providing information and assistance to families. Members of the coronerís office who are familiar with emotional trauma of an unexpected death communicate directly with the family. As the death investigation continues, we review the findings with the families in order to clarify the many questions that accompany a sudden loss of life. This process may continue over weeks, months and in some cases even years.
