This show introduces the Special Victims Unit, a specially trained squad of detectives in the NYPD who investigate sexually related crimes.
Isabel Gillies and Daniel Sunjata, who had recurring roles as Kathy Stabler and a CSU technician, respectively, both played murder suspects on Law & Order (1990); Gillies in Law & Order: Bad Girl (1998), and Sunjata in Law & Order: Mammon (2005).
Capt. Donald Cragen:
What would it take to get a blanket DNA on an entire facility?
ADA Alexandra Cabot: A constitutional amendment.
When the detectives are interviewing someone or working a crime scene, they are never seen taking notes. Real detectives are constantly taking notes. The notes are so important that they are occasionally booked into evidence to ensure the originals will be available for review before trial.
From the second episode of the second season (2000-2001), the opening credits break the pattern followed by the earlier episodes of SVU, the original Law & Order, and Criminal Intent. Instead of the credits ending with a shot of the cast walking towards the camera, they instead are shown sitting around a desk.
