Sadly right now I'm drawing a blank on the question you asked, but I'm sure something will come to me later. So for right now consider Neo from the Matrix my placeholder.

What does NCIS stand for?
Navy Criminal Investigative Service. It's a procedural cop TV show that's pretty good for that kind of show.
Time to drop some real world knowledge yo!
Basically the Navy's equivalent of the FBI. Each of the branches has their own FBI-esque organization.
In the Air Force it's the Office of Special Investigation (as seen on Eagle Eye by the one chick who helped ...kill?... the AI)
The Army has the Criminal Investigation Command (CID because well, they're the Army)They've been mentioned in a few movies before, the only one that comes to mind though is the horrible made for TV movie Murder at the Presidio.
The Marines have the USMC CID and often work with or for NCIS since the Marines fall under the Navy.
The Coast Guard has Coast Guard Investigative Service (CGIS)
