The Special Victims Unit, a specially trained squad of detectives in the NYPD, investigate sexually related crimes.
This show has frequently used The City University of New York Lehman College campus in Bronx, New York, as a school location for many of their episodes.
You're under arrest for attempted kidnapping and reckless endangerment. You have the right to remain silent. If you give up that right, anything you say can and will be used against you in a court of law.
The time-lines of trials seem to be rushed and take place within days of the crime. Most of the cases on this series are rapes and homicides, with a kidnappings thrown in. These cases, if not plea bargained, are seldom heard in less than a year after the event.
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.
