Those shows have gone way off reality. (30-second DNA searches,
etc.). I know several female cops and not one wears a pressed white
linen suit with stiletto heels to work. Most tend to wear jeans (if
permitted) and comfortable shoes--and none are flawlessly coiffed.
It's too bad that scientific and historical accuracy has to be thrown
to the wind for these things--but even much of the computer chat
seems to be nonsense.
