The purpose of Forensic Pathology Service is investigation of the cause of any unnatural death or sudden unexpected death, using scientific internationally accepted methods thereby assisting South African Police Service (SAPS) in the collection of evidence and presentation thereof in a court of law.

The service is also required to keep statistics on trends that can be used in prevention strategies for unnatural causes of death that include trauma such as motor vehicle accidents, violence, drowning, suicide and so on. Though it is joint service partnership with medical universities, the service appoints medical doctors and trains medical, legal and law enforcement practitioners in the field of forensic medicine.
