The primary function of the Records Bureau is to process all public records requests for medical examiner case file information in accordance with Florida Statute 119. This Bureau also assists with requests for statistical data and with research related to medical examiner cases.  On-site research can be conducted in one of the facility's two research rooms.

Records from 2008 to the present day are retained in the Department. Records from 1956 to 2007 are located at an off-site storage facility and require an advance notice of several days for access. Records requests must be submitted to the Department in writing:
