About Us

Office of the Medical Examiner and Trauma Services - Our Mission

Broward County has the unique privilege of combining the services of the medical examiner’s office, forensic toxicology, and trauma services within one organization. While each section has its unique set of values and goals, the sections work together towards raising the level of service to meet the current and evolving standards of care for forensic medicine, forensic toxicology, trauma care, and administration, for the citizens of Broward County and visitors.


We encourage you to contact us with questions or concerns about the death of your loved one, the investigative process, or policies and procedures of the District Seventeen Medical Examiner's Office.
