- Detective Mike Logan's brown leather coat was not supplied by the wardrobe department. 克里斯·诺斯 bought that coat from a second-hand clothing store.
- 吉尔·亨内斯's twin sister, Jacqueline Hennessy, once played her sister's character during courtroom scenes filmed while Jill was unavailable, due to filming an appearance on Homicide: Life on the Street (1993).
- Towards the end of the fifth season, executive producer 迪克·沃尔夫 decided not to renew 克里斯·诺斯's contract, citing that the interaction between Logan and the similarly jaded Briscoe (杰里·奥尔巴赫) lacked enough dramatic contrast. Viewers and critics were shocked at the dismissal of the most popular cast member at that time. Years later, Noth convinced Wolf to produce "放逐 (1998)" to wrap up the story of Mike Logan, which Noth felt had been prematurely extinguished on the show. Noth returned again to revive the character for three seasons of "Law & Order: Criminal Intent (2001)."
