In the criminal justice system, sexually-based offenses are considered especially heinous. In New York City, the dedicated detectives who investigate these vicious felonies are members of an elite squad known as the Special Victims Unit. These are their stories.

Steve Zirnkilton

Created and produced by Dick Wolf, Law & Order: Special Victims Unit is a crime drama television series that premiered on NBC on 20 September, 1999 as the first spin-off of Wolf's successful crime drama Law & Order.

The Special Victims Unit is located in the 16th Precinct of the New York City Police Department and focuses on victims of sexual crimes, such as rape and domestic abuse, as well as cases involving children and the elderly.

As with the original Law & Order, episodes are often loosely based on real crimes that have received media attention or as the franchise calls it "ripped from the headlines".
