Office of Justice Programs (OJP) / Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Federal Interagency Medicolegal Death Investigation Working Group (MDI-WG) Resource Page
The Department of Justice's (DOJ) Office of Justice Programs (OJP) and the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) established this Medicolegal Death Investigation (MDI) Federal Interagency working group (MDI-WG) to coordinate Federal initiatives to strengthen the MDI system and support death investigation services practiced by medical examiner and coroner offices (ME/Cs) across the United States. The MDI-WG commenced in March 2018, is co-chaired by senior leadership from OJP and HHS, and builds upon the work of prior Federal MDI working groups.
OJP, along with DOJ partners, are committed to supporting and protecting America's law enforcement. Featured resources include officer safety & wellness, DOJ resources, VALOR, tribal law enforcement, and helping law enforcement combat opioids.
