Operations includes Investigations who are the gateway for the agency. These staff use established criteria to determine if cases fall under the statutory jurisdiction of the Medical Examiner's Office. Medical-Legal Investigators provide for scene response and assist in collection of evidence and information pertinent to the death at the scene. (e.g. suspicious versus non-suspicious deaths). The Investigators photograph the death scene/body to provide detailed corroborating evidence should questions arise concerning the report, witness statements or position of evidence at the scene. Medical-Legal Investigators perform interviews, research in both field and the office settings to assist in the collection of information of the cause and manner of death. Medical-Legal Investigators follow-up on cases until a conclusion is reached and death certificates are prepared. One Medical-Legal Investigator also continues to manage the Unidentified/Missing Persons Program, for which extensive time is needed for interaction with the general public and external agencies required to manage and oversee Broward County cold cases, and perform casework on all unidentified persons currently falling under the jurisdiction of the Broward Medical Examiner's Office. The Medical-Legal Investigator Supervisor expends large amounts of time to oversee and process the demands of the Indigent Cremation Program for Broward County.

BUDGET COMMENTS

Three positions are converted from PT19 to PT20, to support an increase in caseload and invoice transactions.

One administrative position transferred from the Toxicology Section to improve span of management control.

Office of Inspector General

PROGRAM DESCRIPTION:

The mission of the Broward Office of the Inspector General (OIG) is to act as an independent watchdog for the residents of Broward County. We promote integrity and accountability by investigating allegations of misconduct including fraud, corruption, and abuse and gross mismanagement, by officials and employees of the charter government of Broward County, its thirty-one municipalities, and all entities and persons who provide goods and services to the County and the municipalities. The OIG publicly reports its findings to keep residents informed. Whenever appropriate, the OIG seeks criminal prosecution, civil recoveries, administrative and monetary sanctions, and ethics sanctions of those responsible for fraud, waste and abuse in government.

BUDGET COMMENTS

In November of 2010, voters approved a change in the County Charter to establish the County Office of Inspector General to investigate misconduct and gross mismanagement.

The Office is headed by an Inspector General. The organization and administration of the Office is independent to assure that no interference or influence external to the Office affects the objectivity of the Office.

The Inspector General commences an investigation if good cause exists that any Official, Employee, or Provider has engaged in misconduct or gross mismanagement.

The authority of the Inspector General extends only over the following:

1)All elected and appointed officials and employees of the Charter Government of Broward County and of all municipalities, including any city, town, or village duly incorporated under the laws of the state within Broward County; and 2) All entities and persons (other than employees of the County or any municipality) that provide goods or services to the County or any municipality under contract for compensation, but solely with respect to the provision of such goods or services.

BUDGET COMMENTS

The Cocomar District is a special taxing district that was established in 1976 through joint actions of the County Commission, the Coconut Creek City Commission, and the Margate City Commission. The County Commission sits as the District Governing Board and selects an Advisory Board with recommendations from the cities.

The District extends from the Palm Beach County Line to approximately Atlantic Boulevard on the south, the Turnpike on the east, and State Road 7 on the west.

The District is charged for services provided by County staff. These services include district management, engineering, planning and aquatic weed control. The millage rate for this district will remain unchanged at 0.1446.

The overall increase in the District’s budget is due to planned improvements to the Northern Broward County Recharge System, in the area located between Florida's Turnpike and Lyons Road, on the south side of the Hillsboro Canal.
