Steven Zirnkilton, who narrates the opening credit sequences, only appeared on-screen once. He played a detective in the pilot episode Law & Order: Everybody's Favorite Bagman (1990). He had one line of dialogue: "Look at that. Do you believe these guys?"
You son of a bitch! You played me!
When the detectives want to "bring in" or "pick up" someone for questioning, the subjects are usually located instantly. That might work if they had a consistent schedule they followed faithfully every day, but there are few people who do that. Also, many of the people they are looking for are homeless or otherwise itinerant, and even they don't know where they will be tomorrow.
After the attack on the World Trade Center the opening was changed for one episode to reflect the sacrifices of the NYPD and the NYFD.
Rebroadcasts on TNT were digitally altered to include product placements.
