Many of us love the crime and forensics shows all over TV. There are definitely plenty to choose from: Law & Order, Criminal Minds, NCIS, etc.
Many of these shows involve some very pretty and very badass women in the group. They rock their uniforms. They shoot their weapons. They help solve crimes. They chase bad guys. They perform in forensics labs. Why are we so fascinated with crime shows? I think there are many reasons: the action sequences are exciting, we love stories of justice, we also love stories of revenge. We also like to see the forensics team work to help put criminals away.
There is also a never ending stream of stories that a particular show could do, everything from serial killers to rapists to robbers to drug dealers. There is an infinite number of stories in the news and in writers' heads. We enjoy seeing the procedures behind criminals being caught. Episodes often start and wrap up a case within a 45-minute arc. It makes you cheer for the good guy cops that put a criminal to justice.
Today, I'm bringing you a list of the hottest and BEST female law enforcement characters. I am not including the lawyers featured on crime shows- that list is for another day. I am including police officers, detectives, FBI agents, DEA agents, and jobs of that nature.

Here we have Detective Diane Russell from NYPD Blue. She is played by Kim Delaney. The show ran from 1993 -2005. It was your conventional police procedural drama that took place at the NYPD. It paved the way for many police dramas that are on the air now. People complained about the novel use of profanities and nudity. They protested the premiere and onward. Many network affiliates would not air the show at the time.
