Added DiffLines:

* CowboyCop: Jack Malone. While he's nominally DaChief of the unit, he's got a well-deserved reputation for various degrees of PerpSweating (from LyingToThePerp up to JackBauerInterrogationTechnique) which he's used both on ''witnesses'' as well as suspects, along with ignoring all kinds of protocol. His team usually follows suit, but Jack is the primary offender.

Another show (2002-2009) in the CSIVerse from the ''Series/{{CSI}}-[[Series/LawAndOrderSpecialVictimsUnit SVU]]'' school of "let's focus on a lesser-known faction of the criminal investigation world"; this one takes a look at the FBI's missing persons unit. It's hip and gritty and hyper-edited like its contemporaries, with a similar focus on the cases rather than investigators; it sets itself apart, however, by having a more emotional interest in the cases than procedural, which is greatly helped by a top-drawer performance from Anthony [=LaPaglia=].

Added DiffLines:

* MissingWhiteWomanSyndrome: Noted in a number of episodes, but heavily discussed (and ultimately deconstructed) in "White Balance", which focuses on two missing teens: a black male and a white female. The disparity in media coverage is heavily featured, as well as the UnfortunateImplications of the boy suddenly getting more media attention, but only when it looks like he might be behind the girl's disappearance. Famous for its ending - [[spoiler: a NoEnding in which it's revealed only one of the teens was found alive, but not which teen.]]
