According to an interview with Stephanie Beatriz, the original character of 'Rosa Diaz' was named 'Megan'. The character's name was changed to Rosa for her because she thought there was no way a network would hire two Latinas in its primary cast, after she auditioned for Amy Santiago and Melissa Fumero got that part.

Captain Holt is generally regarded for his attention to detail and procedure, however the holster he wears is actually incredibly unsafe. It features a thumb-break retention strap that can interfere with drawing his revolver during a confrontation. The holster also leaves the trigger-guard of his revolver uncovered, increasing the likelihood of a negligent discharge while drawing or holstering, and making it possible for someone trying to take his revolver to fire it in the holster.
