We are a community of professionals in the field of death investigation. Whether you’re a coroner, a member of local police or county law enforcement, an EMS professional, or medical examiner – or frankly, anyone in between, Coroner Talk™ is the right community for you. We provide training and resources to coroners and death investigators by and from professionals around the world in a peer-to-peer training environment. I recognized that the training available for coroners and small department investigators was limited by resources such as time away from the department and expense. So, I developed Coroner Talk™.

Darren is a 35-year veteran of law enforcement and criminal investigations. He currently serves as a Coroner for Crawford County, Missouri. He holds credentials as an instructor for the Missouri Sheriff’s Training Academy (MSA) and Law Enforcement Training Institute (LETI). He has served as president of the Missouri Medical Examiners and Coroners Association and is certified and credentialed in numerous fields of investigation.

He holds the position of lead instructor and facilitator for the Death Investigation Training Academy (DITA) and for the Coroner Talk™ community as he speaks and writes in the area of death investigation and scene management.

Great!!

I have been a deputy coroner for over 10 years. Listening to the right/wrong way to be a coroner really hit on the different leadership I have witnessed over the years and how it has effected the way we are treated in the field.
That you for shedding light on this field.

SO INFORMATIVE!

I was recently hired as a Coroner Investigator in a very large western region city. As I started researching training and what the job entails I found Darren’s excellent podcast and am currently half way through listening to every episode to help me on the job. The info is presented in a super practical, professional and realistic way. The guests are fantastic. Thank you, Coroner Talk!

Informative and Helpful!

I will give this podcast 5 stars without a doubt. Creating a podcast that talks about such delicate and specific topics is not an easy task. I have taken the MDI Certification recently and it is nice to hear the topics of some of my classes here as a refresher as well as other updates, thank you Darren and crew!
I understand that not all of us agree politically so our focus should be the topic of this podcast, “death investigation”and most importantly, to be able to listen and understand different points of view. I do agree … the sirens can be a little triggering at times so just fast fwd that :)
Anyway, bottom line…. Informative and helpful.
