The Sandman - S11-E17

Continuity mistake: After Garcia traces the phone call, Morgan and Rossi are shown driving to the area of the cell tower. When the shot is from outside the car, the car is a 10th generation (07-14) Chevy Suburban. When the shot changes to inside the car, it's an 11th gen (15-16).

Tribute - S11-E19

Audio problem: Garcia is typing on a flat, foldable rubber keyboard but the keys' sound is loud like from a plastic keyboard. The rubber keyboard shouldn't make noise. (00:39:00)

Hostage - S11-E14

Factual error: Violet is seen wearing Hood style flip-flops where there is a denim like covering just beyond the sandal straps, but this scene takes place in 2001, 12 years before those shoes were available.

Target Rich - S11-E7

Character mistake: When the unsub puts the lock on the woman's collar, he hooks it onto the part where a leash would go. She could easily take the collar off. Later, the lock is on a different hook that is pushed through the collar, so she would not be able to escape. (00:19:10 - 00:33:30)

Tribute - S11-E19

Continuity mistake: After Emily shoots the unsub in the head and he falls on the bed, the gun falls beside him. A second later they show her walking over to his body to remove the gun from his hand. (00:51:00)

Tribute - S11-E19

Other mistake: A mugshot of a suspect is showing with some personal information. Name, license number, address, etc. The field for "Home address" shows a valid address but "Work Address" shows "Male." The correct field title should be "Sex." (00:40:00)

Internal Affairs - S11-E9

Character mistake: When Derek and Rossi are in the morgue, you can see the "corpse" swallowing just before the scene changes.

Tribute - S11-E19

Other mistake: There is a mugshot of a 35 year old suspect on Garcia's computer. According to what she is saying, the suspect's mother died 10 years ago. A photo shows her with the suspect and he looks exactly the same age as he does now. (00:40:00)

Show generally

Question: The crew takes a private jet to most locations but always have the same black S.U.V.s. How do the vehicles get there as fast as the crew?

RGW

Chosen answer: Black SUVs are common police, military and dignitary vehicles around the world. It is not too much to assume they could be rented or owned by the police forces in the areas.

Answer: There is only one BAU (or that's the impression the show gives, in reality there's 5 teams within the BAU), and they're based out of Quantico. However, the FBI has 56 field offices, each with their own vehicles leased from the over 200,000 vehicles that make up the Federal motor fleet. There are long term leases to federal agencies on these cars, in addition to there always being vehicles being made available to lease on an ad hoc basis for assignments. Plus, local and state police likely also have their own unmarked fleets, but due to the vehicles being mostly the same make/model/color in most episodes, they'd likely be borrowed from the nearest field office or other local federal office or ad hoc leased from the fleet for the assignment.
