Generic term for determining what detective is assigned to a new case. In most situations, the detectives in a given squad alternate, which each detective being assigned a case in turn until all have been assigned, and then the "wheel" turns again.

Circular element, mostly toothed, combines with an arbor (s.) and a pinion (s.) to make up a gear (s.). Wheels are normally made of brass, while arbors and pinions are made of steel. The wheels between barrel (s.) and escapement (s.) make up the so-called train (s.).
Typically the combination of rim and tire. The wheel is mounted to the axle via the wheel hub.
A precision team formation in which the skaters are arranged in 2 to 6 lines radiating from a central point likes spokes of a wheel, and which rotates about that central point.
A wheel is a circular device capable of rotating on its axis, facilitating movement or transportation or performing labour in machines. A wheel together with an axle overcomes friction by facilitating motion by rolling. Common examples are found in transport applications.
