Description of Program
The coroner works in conjunction with the police or sheriff to investigate all county deaths of a violent nature, by undue means, or where a crime may have been committed (accident, homicide, or suicide). The coroner may hold an inquest to determine how the person died and other facts concerning the death. It is the duty of the coroner to issue cremation permits on all bodies to be cremated that died in Bradford County. The county coroner is also a conservator of the peace, having the same powers as the Sheriff. The coroner serves as Sheriff when the Office of Sheriff is vacant, or when the Sheriff is interested, partial, or prejudiced in a case. The Coroner's Office is a law enforcement office and the coroner is a law enforcement official.
