The Puerto Rico Bureau of Forensic Science (Spanish: Negociado de Ciencias Forenses de Puerto Rico (NCF)) is the sole medical examiner of Puerto Rico and its municipalities. The bureau is headquartered in San Juan. The agency changed its name in April of 2017 when governor Ricardo Rosselló signed into law the unification of the law enforcement and emergency service agencies of Puerto Rico into the Department of Public Safety. All agencies under the umbrella organization are bureaus of the department.

The current director of the bureau is Doctor María Conte Miller who was appointed by governor Wanda Vazquez Garced on October 8, 2019.[2][3]
