Forensic Sciences


The Toxicology Unit serves Palm Beach County residents by providing Forensic Toxicology services to some 30 state and local law enforcement agencies and universities.  Our primary responsibility is to assist state and local law enforcement in the investigation of DUI (driving under the influence) cases, DUID (driving under the influence of drugs) cases, and sexual assault cases.  This task is accomplished through analytical human performance toxicology services, the interpretation of analytical results, and case consultations.

Human performance toxicology services include the analysis of blood specimens for the presence and concentration of alcohol and drugs, and urine specimens for the presence of drugs.  The unit also provides urine drug testing for the Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office random drug testing program, for-cause testing, court-ordered testing, and alternative custody program.  Consultations and expert testimony are provided to county agencies and other groups on drug related issues.

The goal of the Toxicology Unit is to provide the citizens of Palm Beach County with the highest quality toxicology support services, consultations, and expert testimony available and to provide that service in the most timely, financially responsible manner possible.
