Metro 15

The Metro 15 is a working list of the top 15 violent crime offenders in Albuquerque identified by the Bernalillo County District Attorney’s Office.

Mayor Tim Keller and APD Chief Mike Geier are joining forces with Attorney General Hector Balderas, District Attorney Raul Torrez, the Office of Superintendent of Insurance, and the state Probation & Parole Division to create the Metro 15 Operation that will target the 15 most violent criminals in Albuquerque.

The Metro 15 Operation is a targeted component of Mayor Keller’s Violence Intervention Program – a proactive effort to attack violent crime from all sides.

The Metro 15 includes a working list of the top 15 violent crime offenders in Albuquerque identified by the Bernalillo County District Attorney’s Office. An apprehension team will be made up of officers and investigators from APD, the DA’s Office, the AG’s Office, the state Office of Superintendent of Insurance and the state Office of Probation & Parole.

The Metro 15 list will be continuously updated by the DA’s Office to reflect arrests and add new offenders to the list. The DA’s Office will focus on offenders and fugitives with criminal histories that can be used in successful prosecutions once they are apprehended.
