Police cars lined up on 29th Street in Astoria Monday morning as members of the elite squad known as the Special Victims Unit tried to solve another crime with the help of some friends from Chicago — all for an upcoming episode of “Law & Order: SVU.”

Crews were set up in a courtyard amid four buildings on 29th Street between Broadway and 31st Avenue filming a scene for the 19th episode of season 16 of “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit.”

The episode is part of NBC’s second three-way crossover of “Chicago Fire,” “Chicago P.D.” and “Law & Order: SVU.” The three dramas first came together in a November episode.

The Astoria morning scene featured leading lady of “Law & Order” Mariska Hargitay as Sergeant Olivia Benson, and Erin Lindsay (Sophia Bush) and Hank Voight (Jason Beghe) of “Chicago P.D.”

Also on set was “Law & Order: SVU” newcomer Peter Scanavino, who portrays Detective Dominick “Sonny” Carisi and just joined the cast this season.

A release date for the crossover episode is yet to be announced. Episode 17 is scheduled for March 25. Law & Order: SVU airs Wednesdays at 9 p.m. on NBC.
