This program has a new location.

One of the longest-running shows on air is the immensely popular NCIS, with millions following the exploits of a fictional team of crime fighters each week.  Even more interesting is the work of the real-life members of the Naval Criminal Investigative Service, whose unique role in the world of criminal investigation is more complicated and more compelling than anything on television.

Headquartered at the Marine Corps base in Quantico, NCIS investigates criminal, foreign, and terrorist intelligence threats—from ashore, afloat, or in cyberspace—to the U.S. Navy and Marine Corps. These experts are ready to work around the world at a moment’s notice.

David Lobb, an NCIS special agent, and Lou Eliopulos, division chief of the Forensic Sciences division, share the agency’s mission, stories from the field, and NCIS’s unique forensic approach to current and cold-case investigations.
