James Deakins was the captain of the Major Case Squad on Law & Order: Criminal Intent until season 5. His top detectives included partners Robert Goren and Alexandra Eames, as well as partners Mike Logan and Carolyn Barek.

In 2005, Deakins suffered from Bell's palsy, and was forced to wear an eyepatch. (CI: No Exit)

He resigned from the NYPD in 2006 rather than fight false charges of corruption against him. The charges were planted by jailed former friend Frank Adair, and others inside the Department.
