There were 456 episodes of "Law & Order," 298 episodes (so far) of "Law & Order: SVU," 195 episodes of "Law & Order: Criminal Intent," and a total of 35 episodes of the franchises' unsuccessful spinoffs. With a new case in every episode, it's become a resume staple for nearly every working actor in New York. And that includes celebrities. Over the franchise's 22 years on the air, a number of big-name stars have appeared for one-off spots on the show. And we're not just talking the usual stunt casting, like Khloe Kardashian or Serena Williams.

In Los Angeles, patrol officers are caught disabling recording equipment that was in place to keep them honest. In Santa Monica, a high school student demonstrates why the wrestling coach is the last faculty member to mess with. And in Glendale, a young woman challenges the definition of "hands-free" driving after getting a ticket for talking on a phone tucked into her head scarf. These three police blotter tales have little in common, except that I've assembled them in a nice spring bouquet, along with a prickly observation or two. First the LAPD.

Before his world turned upside down nearly eight years ago, Daryl "Chill" Mitchell was on the move, a young actor winning praise with a steady streak of scene-stealing turns in movies and television. But in November 2001, that momentum was derailed. The 44-year-old actor was injured in a motorcycle accident that left him paralyzed from the waist down. Although he quickly adapted to life in a wheelchair, his status raised doubts about his acting future. These days, Mitchell is back and he's rolling with the punch lines -- literally and figuratively.

It looks like actor Dann Florek is following Richard Belzer out the door at the "Law & Order: SVU" station house. Florek, who plays tough but dedicated Capt. Cragen tweeted his departure from the series on Monday, writing , "Friday was the last day 4 Cragen/Florek. It was a sweet send off! But he'll live on in syndication land 4 evah!" Cragen's departure from the series was not a surprise, as his impending retirement had been discussed earlier in the show's 15th season, when another long-running character on the show, Det. John Munch, played by Belzer, also retired.

Note to the producers of NBC's "Today" show: To avoid embarrassment, it might be wise to give your anchors an occasional  crash course on the network's prime-time lineup. On the "What's Trending Today" segment, news anchor Natalie Morales demonstrated that one thing that's not trending for her is her knowledge of what's actually on her network. During the segment, she said that "Law & Order," a drama that has been off NBC's lineup for more than two years, was still on the air. The misstep came during a story about the new Blu-ray edition of the 1997 hit film "Titanic" which features a never-before-seen screen test with star Kate Winslet and Jeremy Sisto as Jack Dawson, the role eventually played by Leonardo DiCaprio.  Though he lost out on "Titanic," Sisto moved on to a successful TV career, including a recurring role on HBO's "Six Feet Under.

I don't understand your favorable article on "Law & Order" (" 'Law & Order' Steps Out of the Shadows," Dec. 7). The show is right-wing drivel and less realistic than HBO's two comedies in the same time slot. "Law & Order" lifts stories out of the New York Times and doctors them up, so that in every criminal case we have the following: No police officers lie. The suspect is always guilty; the wrong person is never arrested for a crime. Crime labs make no mistakes. All prosecutors are ethical.

"Chicago Fire" sparked NBC's prime-time lineup last season with its mix of adrenaline-driven action sequences and personal drama revolving around the truck-and-rescue squad of a fictional Chicago firehouse. Creator and executive producer Dick Wolf now wants to add heat to the fire with a spinoff, "Chicago P.D.," premiering Wednesday. Wolf and his fellow producers hope "Chicago Fire," still a solid performer in its second season, will fuel interest in "Chicago P.D.," which will feature an ensemble combining familiar faces from "Chicago Fire" with new characters.

NEW YORK - If classical music composer Nico Muhly had his way, his occupation would to the average person seem about as exotic as being a plumber. "I want it to feel the same relationship you'd have with your local butcher or neighborhood fishmonger. It would be like the opening scene of 'Beauty and the Beast' where it's like, 'There's the composer!'" Muhly says at the Metropolitan Opera House, where he just made his debut with "Two Boys," an opera about Internet deception. At just 32, Muhly has already established himself as one of the leading classical musicians of his generation.

On Wednesday night's "Law & Order: Special Victims Unit," Detective John Munch, played by Richard Belzer, retired. And in a fitting send-off the fictional cops of New York's 16th precinct threw him a roast. Belzer's time playing the perpetually sunglasses-wearing detective is unique in broadcast television, in that he's played the same character on 10 TV shows across five channels and 20 years. While Belzer's run ties with Kelsey Grammer as Dr. Frasier Crane and James Arness as Marshal Matt Dillon on "Gunsmoke" for longest portrayal of a single character on TV, the breadth of Belzer's apparances sets him in a league of his own. PHOTOS: Celebrities by The Times Belzer was known primarily as a stand-up comedian when he was cast as a detective in the highly acclaimed NBC police drama "Homicide: Life on the Street.

A Romanian law that calls for the killing of any stray dog captured and unclaimed for more than two weeks has stirred vehement protests throughout Europe and the United States. Animal rights advocates have denounced the legislation upheld by the Romanian Constitutional Court late last month as "inhumane and ineffective" and unlikely to rid the capital, Bucharest, of its tens of thousands of abandoned and desperate canines. The political campaign waged by Bucharest city officials to get legal authority to euthanize the strays was spurred by the Sept.
