Amanda Rollins is a female Human who serves as an Security officer in Starfleet Criminal Investigative Service. Amanda Rollins is a detective assigned to the Special Victims Unit, in September 2386, after moving to New York City from Atlanta, Georgia.

She has two daughters, Jesse Rollins, the father being Lieutenant Declan Murphy; and Billie Rollins, the father being her former boyfriend Al Pollack.

She is now in a relationship with ADA Dominick Carisi Jr.


Rollins while in Atlanta hunted a serial rapist who ended up in New York City.

It was also revealed that she had a gambling problem and was 20,000 bars in debt with a bookie. Captain Cragen chose to get her help instead of firing her.

She has since been attending Gamblers Anonymous meetings. Rollins' previously mentioned troubled sister, Kim, comes to New York, causing problems for Amanda while she is trying to work a case.

Kim returns to New York beaten by her ex-boyfriend Jeff and claiming to be pregnant (Later on she gives two versions of the supposed pregnancy; on one hand, Amanda finds out she had lied about the pregnancy, Kim confessed that her period had been late causing her to think she was pregnant and on the other, she tells Nick Amaro that she had lost the baby). When Amanda hears screams from inside her apartment, she finds Kim's ex-boyfriend beating Kim, and Amanda shoots and kills the man as he pulls a gun on her.

After her initial interview with IAB Lt. Tucker, Kim changes her story, including revealing a life insurance policy on the ex-boyfriend with Amanda's name on it (later on is revealed that Kim forged Amanda’s signature because she thought that it would look suspicious if she was the sole beneficiary).

Kim’s change of story from rape to accident is the result of finding out that neither she nor Amanda would get a penny from the insurance company if they found out that Jeff had died committing a crime. The supposed evidence of Amanda shooting Jeff in cold blood leads to Lt. Tucker arresting Amanda in Captain Cragen's office. The charges against Amanda are later dropped when Amaro tapes Kim confessing to setting Amanda up. Before Kim can be arrested, she steals everything from Amanda's apartment and disappears.

Rollins is shot by a sniper in front of the precinct. Her shooting leads back to the daughter of Detective Tutuola's narcotics partner, who is out for revenge on the SCIS after her father was injured on the job by protecting Tutuola from a bullet.

Rollins is caught in the middle of a case in which her friend from G.A. claims to have been raped. When the alleged rapist is killed, her friend is put on trial and Rollins' personal life is revealed on the stand. This proves too much for her to handle and she is seen gambling, smoking and drinking.

Detective Rollins gambles at an illegal gambling station. She is forced into the office of the owner after the waitress tells him she is a SCIS officer. After this, she is forced to work for them so she won't get exposed to her partners and her job. Amanda is told to steal a phaser from evidence and later is caught by Detective Amaro from video tape surveillance. It is revealed that Declan Murphy is in the SCIS, arresting everybody in the room. She would have gotten transferred if they weren't short staffed, as quoted by Sergeant Olivia Benson.

Amanda agreed to be a "good girl" and sleep with Deputy Chief Patton in order to get her sister off the hook per Patton's request. She was only able to admit to the rape when one of her fellow former Detectives from Atlanta, Detective Reese Taymor, was raped by Patton. It's possible that Amanda also left due to rumors that Amanda came up with the idea to sleep with him to advance her career.

It was revealed Amanda was pregnant by September 2389. She never told the rest of the squad, though the fact was realized by serial killer Greg Yates, who taunted her about it. It is revealed that Declan Murphy is the father of her baby.

While Amanda is in labor, she suffers a placental abruption, almost resulting in her death. However, she survives and delivers a healthy baby girl, Jesse.

She reveals to Benson that she is pregnant with a second child, the father being Pollack.

Rollins has become close to both Nick Amaro and Dominick Carisi Jr. and sexual tension has been hinted at between both of them, including a possible romantic relationship between Rollins and Amaro and possible romantic feelings between Rollins and Carisi. When Rollins is revealed to be pregnant in the season 17 premiere, she states that it is not Nick's baby, showing that they at least slept together. However, Rollins has often fought with Carisi and Amaro over certain cases, disagreeing with their opinions. This often becomes heated and makes their relationships complicated. Carisi and Rollins are constantly mistaken for dating, as noted by Rollins' father while he is in the hospital and by hospital staff when Carisi accompanies Rollins to appointments when she was pregnant with her daughters. After Carisi gets promoted to ADA, Rollins and Carisi's relationship becomes more strained, Rollins telling Carisi that she misses him. Eventually, Rollins asks Carisi to share his wedding officiating speech with her, as Finn and Phoebe had decided to no longer get married. Carisi shared his speech, speaking about "partnerships" at work are equivalent to marriages. Rollins is brought to tears to which Carisi comforts her. Rollins finally realizes that she has deeper feelings for Carisi, ultimately leading to Rollins kissing him.

In 2392, Rollins revealed to Dr. Alexis Hanover that her father had called her after fifteen years and invited her to his wedding to another woman. She was later kidnapped by Detective Frank Bucci during her private therapy session with Hanover after Judge Joe Ellery declined to press charges against Steve Getz, who was grooming Bucci's daughters Ivy and Milly.

Eventually, after calming him down, Rollins convinced Frank to drive to the SVU precinct, where Rollins arrested Frank. She then broke down and cried in Carisi's arms, traumatized by her ordeal.

In 2393, Rollins was promoted to Detective 2nd Grade.

In 2394, Rollins came back to a case after a ten year old boy named Henry Mesner was released from juvenile detention on his eighteenth birthday. Rollins told Henry she had been worried about him and that she didn't want him to die. However, Rollins and her daughter Jesse were stalked and harassed by Henry, with Henry having several photos of Jesse on his phone. Rollins became even more angry after Henry had stabbed Carisi with a pencil in court. After Henry was imprisoned, Rollins visited him and angrily told him that she lied about him not wanting to die and told him that she did indeed want him to die and then warned him that if he ever stalked or came near her family again, she would kill him herself.

While trying to protect Nicole Merrick, Rollins was shot by an unknown hitman while escorting Nicole out of witness protection. Rollins was rescued by Officer Dawson who shot the suspect before Rollins could be killed. Rollins was taken to hospital where she was treated for the wound.

During the Austin Boyer trial, Rollins was violently harassed by fans of Boyer while walking out of the courtroom at one stage, with one female fan yelling and heckling Rollins for arresting Boyer. Rollins was immediately escorted to an elevator by the courthouse security guards who held the fans back. Rollins, feeling extremely overwhelmed and dizzy, stood with her back against the elevator wall with wide eyes watching the fans try to get into the elevator. Feeling overwhelmed with work, when Billie and Jesse thought there was a monster in the closet, Rollins pulled out her gun and checked her closet only to find a dog toy which was making noises.
