TriviaEdit

  • The 16th Precinct is one of the few precincts specially outfitted to deal with children as victims, witnesses, or suspects.
  • The 16th Precinct was built prior to 1970. (SVU: "Folly")
  • The 16th Precinct, if it were real, would be located somewhere in Midtown Manhattan between the Midtown South (14th) and Midtown North (18th) Precincts
  • Contrary to beliefs or speculations, the Special Victims Unit is not the only unit within the 16th Precinct as there are uniformed police officers shown walking around.
  • Whereas Lieutenant Benson is specifically said to be the CO only of the actual Special Victims Unit itself, Cragen (given his high rank) may have been commander of the entire precinct.
  • The 16th Precinct dates back to 1949, when it served as the setting for the radio program "Broadway is My Beat."
