Follows a crime, usually adapted from current headlines, from two separate vantage points, the police investigation and the prosecution in court.
Law & Order episodes are often advertised as being "ripped from the headlines." Many people mistake this to mean that they are based on real events. In reality, the slogan is referring to the show's practice of coming up with stories that are ... ...
Det. Lennie Briscoe:
"Oh hello Mrs. Russell, you daughter was raped and shot in the head". You want me to do it?
Throughout the series, the detectives (or the Crime Scene Unit Forensic Technicians) are able to ID a bullet caliber from the wound size. In reality this is impossible. A 9mm, .38, .40 and even a .45 all make wounds that are indistinguishable from each other on a body. The police also often look at a bullet and ID the pistol from it. While possible, this requires forensic analysis and is generally not very conclusive because the bullet is too deformed. The conformation of a particular bullet coming from a particular gun using "ballistic fingerprinting" has never resulted in a conviction.
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.
