Wichita Co. JP's Training For New Roles

In the wake of the closing of the Wichita County Medical Examiner's Office, Wichita County Justices of the Peace are training today for their new roles as death investigators.

The training system called Inquest cost around $2,000.

When the District Attorney's Office looked into the Medical Examiner's Office they decided it was better for the county to shut the program down and go back to having the Justices of the Peace handle the cases in the form of the Office of the Death Investigator.
