"In the criminal justice system, the people are represented by two separate, yet equally important, groups: the police, who investigate crime; and the district attorneys, who prosecute the offenders. These are their stories."
"Law & Order" is one of the most successful and critically acclaimed series in the history of television. For over a decade this Emmy Award-winning series has presented the investigation and prosecution of cases ripped straight from today's headlines. Filmed entirely in and around New York City, this realistic yet fictional drama follows a crime, usually adapted from current headlines, from a dual perspective. The first half of the show concentrates on the investigation of the crime by the police, the second half follows the prosecution of the crime in court.
