|“||In the city of Miami, the people are represented by two separate yet equally important groups: the Miami-Dade Police Department, who investigate the crime, and the District Attorney's office, who conduct the people's case. These are their stories.||„|
|~ The opening narration by Steven Zirnkilton.|
Law & Order: Miami is an American police procedural/legal drama series set in Miami, where it is produced. Created and produced by Dick Wolf, the series premiered on USA Network on May 23rd, 2012, as a replacement to Wolf's successful spin-off series, Law & Order: Criminal Intent. On January 1st, after roughly nine years on USA Network, it was announced by Dick Wolf via his Twitter page that the series will be transferred to NBC due to the overwhelmingly positive ratings the Season Nine Finale received. The series ended on August 2nd, 2034, after 21 seasons.
Set in Miami, Florida, the series follows a two part approach. When a crime is committed, the victims are represented by two separate yet equally important groups: the Miami-Dade Police Department, who investigate the crime, and the Miami District Attorney's office, who conduct the people's case in the trial. In almost every episode, the first half hour focuses on the investigation by the detectives, followed by the second half the of episode focusing on the prosecution of the offenders by the district attorneys.
In the style of the original Law & Order, episodes are often "ripped from the headlines" or loosely based on a real crime that received media attention.
Investigating the crimes are a team of elite detectives, who all report to their ranking captain. It is their job to investigate the crime, collect evidence, interview witnesses and then, when the evidence points to a suspect or suspects, place the suspect(s) under arrest. The matter is then taken over by the prosecutors of the Miami District Attorney's office. They discuss deals, prepare the witnesses and evidence and conduct the people's case in the trial.
Both teams work with the Medical Examiners Office, Crime Lab and psychiatrists from both the police department and DA's office.
