Horatio Caine (David Caruso), a former homicide detective, heads a group of investigators who work crimes amid the steamy, tropical surroundings and cultural crossroads of Miami. His team includes Calleigh Duquesne (Emily Procter), a bilingual Southern beauty with a specialty in ballistics; Tim Speedle (Rory Cochrane), a cocky yet disarming investigator who is well connected on the street, and Eric Delko (Adam Rodriguez), an underwater recovery expert who knows all the twists and turns of the Florida waterways. Rounding out the team is Alexx Woods (Khandi Alexander), the no-nonsense, know-it-all coroner. And, after Speedle is killed in action, former Patrolman Ryan Wolfe (Jonathan Togo) joins the team. Together, these investigators collect and analyze the evidence to solve the crimes and to vindicate those who often cannot speak for themselves - the victims.
"I'm Horatio Caine, and this much I know. At CSI Miami we never Close." (UK tagline)

Did You Know?
In real life, the Miami-Dade Police Department's crime scene processing unit is called the "Crime Scene Investigations Bureau (CSIB)", and unlike the television show, MDPD's CSIB technicians do not conduct laboratory testing. Miami-Dade Police Department has a separate Bureau that operates the Miami-Dade Crime Lab. Also, the CSIBs are not detectives, and most present day applicants are surprised to discover that the CSIBs do not perform most of the tasks depicted on the series. For example, they do not interview suspects, they do not write or execute search warrants, and they do not make arrests. In real life, they are directed around the scenes by the detectives and supervisors, not the other way around. Detectives are commissioned police officers (sworn personnel). CSIBs are non-police personnel, not sworn, and do not have the same arrest powers as police officers. However, they are very skilled technicians, and are a component of the police response to crime.

"The CSI Effect": We see the main characters collecting evidence at crime scenes as Crime Scene Investigators and then examining the same evidence in the Crime Lab, working as lab technicians. This would not be allowed to happen in real life as it would lead to cross-contamination. See more

There are two ways this goes down, and either way, you're dropping the gun.
With the exceptions of Omar Miller, Sofia Milos, Rex Linn, Eva LaRue and Megalyn Echikunwoke all the actors names morph out of equations: * 4y-1=3b[Nh] becomes "David Caruso" * 3a1-X=[A9Xy] becomes "Emily Procter" * [7b]=6m+[3h] becomes "Jonathan Togo" * 3b+N=7bn1[6A] becomes "Adam Rodriguez" * 2b+4a=[7h]3 becomes "Eddie Cibrian" * [3h]+[7b]=6m becomes "Rory Cochrane" * A1b+B2c=R4 becomes "Kim Delaney" * 2b+4a=[7h]3XyNh becomes "Khandi Alexander" See more
