Here's What NCIS Gets Wrong About Crime Scene Investigations

The article discusses how the NCIS franchise, a TV crime drama, sometimes gets the details of crime scene investigations wrong. While the show presents investigations in a fast-paced "case of the week" format, investigations in reality take much longer than a single episode, which is not portrayed in the show. Additionally, the show's forensic scientist, Abby Sciuto, was deemed unrealistic by Jennifer Shen, the former Crime Laboratory Director for the San Diego Police Department. Forensic analysis is not a one-person job, and it takes years to train forensic scientists in any of the forensic disciplines, much less in all of them.
