Many types of sexual crimes are perpetrated against women, kids, and other victims, including rape, incest, mutilation, and more.

The show specifically focuses on violent (and often sensational) crimes that also involve sex in some way. There's some gunplay as well. Scenes can be graphic.

A few "damns", "asses", "bastards", "hells", "whore", "slut", "bitch", "dick" etc.

Drugs often figure prominently in the plotlines.

Many "ticking clock" scenes where the detectives have to race to save someone's life.

suggested rating R for sexuality including rape and assault,drug content and violence.

This show may be emotionally intense and disturbing for some viewers in the sense that in the end, there is not always a "win" or a "justice" shown. ( for example, despite best attempts, a rapist will get free and the victim will be left crying in the courtroom). There are also multiple episodes showing underage children committing crimes / sex crimes / lethal crimes to adults or other children older or younger, that might be disturbing to some.
