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.
