Detective Chris Cavaliere is a detective working for the Las Vegas Police Department.
Detective Cavaliere is a rough detective who once went so far as to scare a child into confession for the murder of his brother, a move that had him clashing with CSI Nick Stokes although it was later proved to be true but Nick refused to apologise to Cavaliere for what had happened.
He sometimes takes pictures of bizarrely murdered people for a scrap book such as a deceased clown left undressed in a tire (Getting Off).
In Say Uncle, Cavaliere was injured after lifting a picture rigged to an explosive device.
He is played by Jose Zuniga.
- Cavaliere has appeared in seasons 4–6, 9 and 10 with the episode, "Sin City Blue" presumbly being his last.
