  • Crime Scene Investigation – Part 2
    "The difference between a murder and a homicide... and the difference between a crime scene and the scene of the crime."

  • The term perp walk 
    "is an American slang term which refers to the police practice of intentionally parading an arrested suspect (or "perp", short for "perpetrator") through a public place so that the media may observe and record the event.
    The suspect is typically handcuffed or otherwise restrained, and is often dressed in prison garb...
    A perp walk can be used with intentional disregard for the privacy of a suspect for the purpose of bolstering the image of law enforcement or to humiliate a suspect. Perp walks are often done to politicians or businesspeople accused of white-collar crimes (whose reputations may be susceptible to damage by public spectacle)."
  • A police lineup (in American English) or identity parade (in British English)
    "is a process by which a crime victim or witness's putative identification of a suspect is confirmed to a level that can count as evidence at trial.
    The suspect, along with several other individuals (called "fillers" or "foils") of similar height, complexion and build (these can be prisoners, actors
    or volunteers) stand both facing and in profile. This is sometimes done in a special room which includes details like a height measurement grade on
    the wall to aid identifying the person's height. The person making the identification views from behind a one-way mirror or similar protection to
    guarantee the suspect identified by the witness cannot know the identity of the witness.
