Did You Know?
In real life, the New York City Police Department (NYPD) Crime Scene Investigators (CSIs) are not detectives and they are called Forensic Technicians, who work in teams called Crime Scene Units (CSUs). The CSUs 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). CSUs are civilian personnel, not sworn and they do not have the same arrest powers as police officers. However, they are very skilled technicians, and they are a component of the police's response to crime. See more
Throughout the series, probably to avoid copyright infringement issues, incorrect references are made to the New York Subway system. On subway entrances, the 1, 2, and 3 lines are shown in yellow, when they are actually red. A character blames his lateness on the fact that the Q train was changed to an express, whereas in real life the Q is normally an express. See more
