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
We see the CSIs constantly ask the detectives working with them to put out APBs (All Points Bulletins) or BOLOs (Be On the Look Out) to bring suspects and witnesses in. When found NYPD just walk up to people and place them in the squad car, taking them to the station for the CSIs to interview, even though it's pretty clear they didn't want to come. If there is no probable cause for an arrest or an active arrest warrant, the police can't make you go anywhere against your will. Once in a while, a wealthy or educated person will assert this and ask a lawyer to be present but this is rare. See more
