Tours & Media



Out of respect for the deceased and their families and to avoid any disruption to daily operations, only a limited number of tours of the Medical Examiner’s facility are available to fire personnel, law enforcement, and government agencies involved in the medical legal justice system. Participants must be the equivalent of a junior in college and or 21 years of age and bring a state-issued ID on the day of the tour.
