The Metro 15 is a working list of 15 offenders who are considered drivers of crime in Albuquerque. The first list was created on November 2019. As offenders are arrested, new offenders and fugitives are identified based on their criminal history and the potential for successful prosecution. APD’s Shield Unit prepares discovery for prosecutors to use in court and work to keep offenders in jail.

The Metro 15 Operation is a targeted component of Mayor Keller’s proactive effort to attack violent crime from all sides. Since the operation began 53, offenders have been arrested.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 505-843-STOP. Anonymous tips can also be submitted at
