Programs & Services
Workshops & Seminars
Miami-Dade Police and the Miami-Dade County Medical Examiner's Office in partnership with Florida International University present their inaugural event.
Methods of discovery and documentation relating to death investigation, crime scene and general photography are covered in detail along with related biomedical and forensic photography techniques.
Five-day training courses are offered several times a year in the medical and legal aspects of death.
Through the use of forensic pathology we combine the efforts of legal and law enforcement investigations with those of medicine and science to ascertain the facts surrounding deaths, particularly the cause and manner of death.
On a daily basis we provide personal services to bereaved next-of-kin who call and visit us seeking help. Each decedent draws an investigating police agency as a consequence of the jurisdiction in which the death occurs, and each decedent will be followed by family members.
We provide low-cost disposition for abandoned, unclaimed human remains and for deceased members of indigent Miami-Dade County families.
We also host forensic seminars for professionals and students from around the world.
