The five counties in New York City each elected a sheriff (as they still elect a District Attorney) until 1942, when the sheriff's offices were consolidated into the New York City Sheriff's Office. The counties (including Bronx County) also elected coroners beginning in 1897, although they don't seem to do so today. Were the coroners consolidated at the same time as the sheriffs or at some other time? —— Shakescene (talk)
