Director of Operations, Death Investigation Training Academy
I would like to personally give my endorsement of Dottie Owens, Coroner of Ada County Idaho. As director of the National Death Investigation Training Academy I have the opportunity to meet and work with Coroners and Death Investigators from across
the United States. Few are more committed and qualified than Dottie. Dottie has been key in elevating the professionalism and credibility of her office, this is to the benefit of Ada County. She is among a very select few Coroners who have been awarded accreditation from both the International Coroner and Medical Examiners Association ICMEA and the National Association of Medical Examiners NAME. Real experience counts in the office of Coroner and in the current national debate over
the coroner system as a whole, it is imperative that experienced – qualified coroners hold office.
