Ten Most Wanted Fugitives List
June 21, 2013
The FBI’s Ten Most Wanted Fugitives list hit a major milestone this week.
Mollie Halpern: The printers worked overtime at FBI Headquarters so that wanted posters of the 499th and 500th additions to the Ten Most Wanted Fugitives list could circulate.
It’s a major milestone for this successful program. Ron Hosko is the assistant director of the Criminal Investigative Division…
Ronald T. Hosko: Here we are at number 500 after 63 years. About 94 percent of those people have been located or apprehended and were brought back to justice.
Halpern: Number 500 was arrested just one day after publicity began—proof that the success is largely dependent on the media and its consumers.
Hosko: Without the media putting this out and the public stepping up—seeing something and saying something—this program would fail.
Halpern: The FBI increasingly reaches out to the public through digital media.
Hosko: The consumers of this information are looking at something other than a printed piece of paper.
Halpern: For more information, the FBI’s website and social media accounts. I’m Mollie Halpern for FBI, This Week.
