OAR 291-027-0040
Removal of the Deceased


The deceased and the death scene will be left undisturbed unless authorized under OAR 291-027-0030 (Assessment and Security) (4).


When the medical examiner and the State Police have released the body, the functional unit manager or designee will make arrangements for transportation of the deceased to the designated mortuary in accordance with contracts or local agreements negotiated by the department.


Assigned staff will maintain supervision of the deceased until the appropriate mortuary has taken control of the remains. This includes expected deaths that occur at outside medical facilities. Exceptions may be made by the functional unit manager or designee only after coordination with the assigned State Police investigator.


The State Police will determine the time and place that the deceased inmate will be fingerprinted and coordinate this process with the assigned institution when appropriate.
