Hi calisilverfox,

There are so many fonts in use today!  When trying to identify a
particular font, it helps to examine the letters in the font for
telltale signs – things that make the font look different from other
fonts.  In the case of the CSI logo, the slant of the S’s middle bar
can help.

I believe that the font used for the CSI logo is called
Clicker-Regular.  A sample of this font can be seen at,

(You can also ‘testdrive’ the font, typing in your own words to see
how they appear in the font:

Another font which may be used in the show's titles (and which appears
extensively on  CSI’s home page at CBS) is a font called Handel

An example of this font can be seen here:
I hope this is what you were looking for.  If you need more, just let
me know.

Search strategy: 
To identify these fonts, I used’s excellent ‘WhatTheFont’
utility, ( ), which can search for
fonts given sample letters or text that you upload.

Another site that can identify fonts is : it
works by asking a series of questions about the details of the font -
shapes of letters etc.
