The Forensic Services Bureau includes an accredited crime laboratory, and its scientists examine evidence, conduct analysis and issue reports with the findings, and provide expert testimony in courts of law. The Bureau is comprised of the Analytical, Forensic Identification, Fingerprint Identification, and Forensic Biology Sections and provides forensic services for Miami-Dade County’s estimated 2.8 million citizens and all 35 municipalities.

The Forensic Services Bureau offers internships based on staffing levels, workload, and availability of projects that are beneficial to the MDPD, FSB and the student. Learn more about internships.

The Forensic Services Bureau has been voluntarily accredited since 1989 and is currently accredited by the ANSI-National Accreditation Board in the field of forensic testing. The Quality Assurance Section is responsible for ensuring the FSB complies with the rigorous standards of accreditation. Accreditation is attained through a formal review of the policies and procedures of the laboratory by an impartial external entity to ensure that the laboratory is complying with applicable national and international forensic standards. The Quality Assurance Section is also responsible for converting the FSB’s paper documents into electronic format, providing laboratory documents that are requested by attorneys for court, and providing documents pursuant to public record requests.
