Did You Know?
In real-life, the New York City Police Department (NYPD) Crime Scene Investigators (C.S.I.s) are not detectives and they are called Forensic Technicians, who work in teams called Crime Scene Units (C.S.U.s). The C.S.U.s 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). C.S.U.s 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
In the episodes where the blood is spattered or in a large pool, the pattern of the blood varies from scene to scene. For example: A man is killed and the blood is sprayed across a desk. The pattern in scene 1 (finding the body) will be different than in scene 2 (going back to the crime scene for further evidence). See more
