RE-ELECT DOTTI OWENS
FOR ADA COUNTY CORONER
Dotti’s First Term Accomplishments
Dotti’s First Term Accomplishments as Ada County Coroner
- Received full NAME Accreditation for the Ada County Coroner’s Office 2017, Ada County became the 3rd Coroner’s Office nationally to hold dual accreditations (NAME/ IAC&ME). The Medicolegal Death Investigation system is vital and strengthening this system is essential. In response to the demand to strengthen the Coroner system, Dotti Owens has raised the operating standards of the ACCO to new levels. For the first time in history, the ACCO received a full accreditation through National Association of Medical Examiners (NAME). This accreditation was obtained under Dotti’s leadership by enforcing an extensive set of standards while implementing national credibility, quality, and integrity throughout all aspects of the office.
- Maintained International Association of Coroner’s and Medical Examiners (IAC&ME) Accreditation for the Ada County Coroner’s Office 2016 to present.
- Under the direction of Dotti Owens, the ACCO has developed into a regional facility while easing the taxpayer burden. Throughout this last few years, the ACCO has contracted with 33 Idaho counties and three reservations. Services provided to outside counties consist of autopsy services, toxicology, histology, and anthropology services. Operating as a regional facility (per national recommendations) has allowed counties in Idaho to have the ability to utilize necessary services while maintaining standards as defined and adopted by the Idaho State Association of County Coroners.
- Dotti has been instrumental in bringing medicolegal death investigation standards to Coroner’s throughout the state of Idaho. Tasked with composing a state manual, Dotti hit the challenge head-on and in April 2018 a state policy and procedure manual was adopted through the Idaho State Association of County Coroners. In addition, Dotti Owens and her team of highly trained professionals have been training and assisting Coroners throughout the state under a grant that Dotti was able to obtain for the association.
