Mission Statement
The Office of the Medical Examiner's mission is to provide compassionate, accurate, timely, dignified and professional death investigative services for the citizens of Pierce County. The Office of the Medical Examiner investigates cases of persons who die within Pierce County suddenly, when in apparent good health; when unattended by a physician; from criminal violence; by casualty or by suicide; in a correctional facility; or in any suspicious or unusual manner in order to determine the cause and manner of death. The OME also investigates when an application is made to cremate the body of a deceased person or to transport the body outside of Wisconsin.
