Fiscal Impact/Change to Net County Cost: The Sheriff's Office regularly budgets for this service. As a result, there is no change to Net County Cost.
 
Background: When the El Dorado County Coroner investigates a homicide, a suspicious death or a death from Sudden Infant Death Syndrome, an autopsy needs to be conducted by a certified forensic pathologist in order to have credible evidence for a court proceeding or to comply with state protocols. El Dorado County does not employ a certified forensic pathologist, and as a result, the Sheriff's Office has historically contracted with Sacramento County for these services.
 
The current contract with Sacramento County for these services expires on June 30, 2014.
 
Reason for Recommendation: Approval of this recommendation will allow the Sheriff's Office to amend its current contract with Sacramento County  Coroner to increase the compensation by $30,000 to continue receiving reports  from a certified forensic pathologist in instances of a homicide, suspicious death or Sudden Infant Death Syndrome.
 
Action to be taken following Board approval: Upon receiving an executed contract signed by the Chair, the Sheriff's Office will distribute copies to Sacramento County.
