Multiple cases are shown which have interstate or international components. While NYPD SVU detectives might cooperate in those cases, they would primarily be handled by the FBI or some other federal law enforcement agency.
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.
