He made his first screen appearance in the show's pilot, broadcast on October 6, 2000, he was credited in 317 episodes. Guilfoyle's departure was announced in March 2014 and his character left on May 7, 2014; the character appeared in every episode during his run, with the exception of "Felonious Monk" from season two, "Gum Drops" and "The Unusual Suspect" from season six, "Leaving Las Vegas" from season seven, "Blood Moon", "All That Cremains" and "Cello and Goodbye" from season eleven and "Bittersweet", "Seeing Red", "Malice in Wonderland" and "Dune and Gloom" from season twelve, "Wild Flowers" and "Dead Air" from season thirteen, "Last Supper", "Killer Moves", "Consumed" from season fourteen. He appeared in 303 episodes. On March 24, 2014 it was announced that Jim would be leaving CSI: Crime Scene Investigation by the end of season 14. Guilfoyle was written out of the show.

The actor found out that he would not be returning for the fifteenth season the week before the announcement. Executive producers Carol Mendelsohn and Don McGill stated "In a show about forensics, fans always looked forward to the handcuffs coming out, Capt. Brass putting his spin on the crime of the week, just as Paul Guilfoyle put his indelible stamp on the character and the show, he will be missed." Jim left the team on May 7, 2014 but returned for the series finale in season 15. Brass enlisted in the United States Marine Corps fresh out of high school and did two tours of duty in the Vietnam War, he graduated from Seton Hall University with a degree in history. After the war, he joined the Newark Police. Brass spent 20 years working his way up to homicide detective in New Jersey. Before he became a homicide detective, he was assigned to Vice. While working in Vice, he worked hard to clean up his department, earning the enmity of many of his former colleagues. Brass, under stress, sometimes drank and would cover it up by popping cough drops to hide the smell of alcohol on his breath.

While his wife Nancy was having an affair with Vice cop Mike O'Toole, Brass was busy with his own affair with another member of the vice squad, Annie Kramer, who moved to Los Angeles and was promoted to captain. Brass claims that it was Nancy's affair that ruined their marriage, rather than the other way around, that she just wanted a way out. Brass came to Las Vegas. Early on, Brass and other officers new to the force were courted by Undersheriff McKeen in regards to taking bribes, the entire group having been invited to McKeen's for a barbecue. Brass made it clear he was not for sale and said he was not invited to any more gatherings after that. However, he was much a player and a partier, describing work as "an interruption to his fun", he had a fling with former officer Ann-Marie Tolsom, his name turning up on a list of those who had had physical relations with her when she was believed killed by her ex-husband. Brass left his wilder side behind, began running the CSI department, more as an administrator than as an investigator.

Showing as an example of how much he trusts the team, Brass has stated that he would want Gil Grissom's CSI team to investigate his murder. Brass used to have Grissom's job as the supervisor of the CSI team. After young CSI Holly Gribbs was murdered on her first day in the field, he lost his position to Grissom. Brass was given the position as a homicide detective serving as the legal muscle for the CSI team and the one who does most of the arresting and interrogating of suspects. Brass is shown to favor heavy-caliber weaponry including a USP.45 handgun and a Remington 870 shotgun. In the two-part episode "A Bullet Runs Through It", Brass tries to counsel Detective Sofia Curtis, who believes she may have accidentally killed another officer in a chaotic shoot-out with a gang of drug dealers, he is stunned and guilt-ridden to realize that he was the one that killed the officer. At the officer's funeral, his widow approached, when Brass tried to explain how sorry he was, she told him that she knew it was not his fault.

While Brass could never be accused of being a "soft cop", he has a reputation for adhering to the rules and witty sarcasm when interviewing suspects. In the episode "Who and What", after the FBI's Jack Malone slams a suspect's head on the table, Brass rushes in and pulls him off, saying "If you want to rendition him to Gitmo, be my guest, but in this house, we play by the rules." In the episode "You Kill Me", after David Hodges creates a fictional story in which Brass uses his night stick on a suspect, fellow lab tech Henry comments "Captain Brass isn't the type of cop that smacks suspects around." At the end of season 8, in "For Gedda", Brass tells CSI Warrick Brown "I hope you remember how lucky you are", after Warrick is cleared of a murder charge. Warrick is murdered at the end of the episode. In the season 9 premiere, "For Warrick", Brass is shown to be stricken with guilt over these words. Brass has a good working relationship with other members of the team. Protective of his colleagues, he is the one to draw his gun and does not like it when the CSIs try to take dangerous m
