About us

The Coroners Court of Victoria (CCOV) has three roles.

  • Independently investigating deaths and fires. Certain deaths and fires are reported to the Coroners for independent investigation. Their investigations seek to establish the facts – when, where, how, and why the death or fire happened.
  • Reducing preventable deaths. Wherever possible, the Coroner will suggest ways to prevent similar deaths or fires by making well informed and practical recommendations, based on the evidence before them.
  • Promoting public health and safety and the administration of justice. The court regularly reports on data and trends regarding preventable deaths in Victoria to help inform public health responses.
