The Special Victims Unit, a specially trained squad of detectives in the NYPD, investigate sexually related crimes.
With the commencement of its fifteenth season in September 2013, the series surpassed Knots Landing (1979) as the longest running live-action spin-off series in American prime time television history. Knots Landing (1979), a spin-off of Dallas (1978), ran for fourteen seasons from 1979 to 1993.

Despite many of the crimes being homicides in addition to being sex crimes, homicide detectives are not shown to have responded to the case. The major crime would be the murder itself, with the sex crime elements being included offenses.
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.
