The cases of the Naval Criminal Investigative Service's Washington, D.C. Major Case Response Team, led by Special Agent Leroy Jethro Gibbs.
Gibbs was a Gulf War veteran, but the tee-shirt he occasionally wears could be a reminder of his NIS origins. Although the NIS was renamed in 1985, becoming the NSIC, then the NISC, it was only in 1992 the NCIS was taken out of the uniformed navy's control and a civilian director appointed.
The real NCIS HQ is actually located in Quantico, VA, not the Navy Yard in SE DC.
This definition appears in the opening credits of season 1; The Naval Criminal Investigation Service [NCIS] is a worldwide federal law enforcement organization whose mission is to protect and serve the Navy and Marine Corps and their families. To counter the evolving threats NCIS has implemented a new proactive strategic plan which emphasizes the following priorities; -Prevent terrorism and related hostile acts against DoN forces and installments -Protect DoN systems and information against compromise -Reduce criminal activity and mitigate the impact on Navy and Marine Corps operational readiness
The original pilot, a 2-parter in JAG, was re-cut into a single-episode and shown in the middle of the first season.
