CSCA is a non-profit organization founded in 1968 to promote and protect the interests of all Coroner and Medical Examiner professionals throughout the state. California’s medicolegal death investigation system is configured in three distinct models; however regardless of the variation in the title and administrative structure of the offices, the state and federal laws governing the Coroner function remain consistent for all of the state’s 58 county offices.
The Association is committed to communicating our members’ concerns to government and regulatory bodies, advocating for sound public policies that affect our industry, promoting professional standards that enhance the effectiveness of the medicolegal death investigation service to our communities, and providing excellence in training and education.
