Following the departure of George Eads at the end of Season 15, only four members of the original cast remain: Jorja Fox (Sara Sidle), Eric Szmanda (Greg Sanders), Robert David Hall (Al Robbins), and David Berman (Dr. David Phillips). However, Eads was the last actor to depart who had remained in the main cast since the show's premiere.

In real life, the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department (LVMPD) Crime Scene Investigators (CSI's) are not detectives and are called Crime Scene Analysts (CSA's). Most present day applicants are surprised to discover that the CSA's so not perform most of the tasks depicted on the series. E.g. They do not interview suspects, they do not write or execute search warrants, and they do not make arrests. In real life they are directed around the scenes by the detectives and supervisors, not the other way around. Detectives are commissioned police officers (sworn personnel). CSA's are civilian personnel, not sworn and do not have the same arrest powers as police officers. However they are very skilled technicians, and are a component of the police response to crime.

Goofs
In later seasons, the same line pattern (which looks like an off-center 5-pointed arch) is consistently used when the CSI's try to search for a fingerprint match in AFIS.

Numerous times, autopsies are conducted by people who were wearing the same clothes they wore in the field. Not only does this promote cross-contamination, but it is also highly unsanitary as well as an OSHA violation.

In many episodes the CSI's are shown taking photos from crime scenes, then enlarging and enhancing them to get clues that let them solve that weeks crime. But in many instances, the original photo is blurry and out of focus and no matter how much you enlarge and enhance it you would not get the clear image of the clue that they always get on CSI.
