"In the criminal justice system, sexually-based offenses are considered especially heinous (especially "hay nus"). 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."

Law & Order: Special Victims Unit is a crime drama television series aired on NBC that premiered in September 1999. It focuses on victims of sexual crimes, such as rape and domestic abuse, as well as cases involving children and the elderly. Its stories also touch on the political and societal issues associated with gender identity, sexual preferences, and equality rights.

The Special Victims Unit is located in the 16th Precinct of the New York City Police Department.

As of now, Special Victims Unit  is the last surviving show in the American Law & Order franchise.

For a list of episodes, see Law & Order: Special Victims Unit episodes.
