Crimes are committed throughout the U.S. every second of every day. Every type of crime from horrible, unspeakable murderous rampages, to minor infractions, are taking place at this very moment.

Some of the perpetrators are captured, convicted and sentenced, while other crimes remain unsolved for decades, leaving dangerous fugitives living among us.

The Federal Bureau of Investigations compiles a list of known fugitives wanted in connection with a series of crimes.

So what doe's it take to make the list for most wanted man or woman in the country? How does the FBI rate the most wanted, out of all suspected criminals in the nation?

The process begins and continues with a call to each of the 56 FBI field offices. Each FBI field office can submit one or more candidates to the Top Ten.

The criteria considered in choosing candidates:

Is this person a serious danger to society? Is this person violent? Armed? Does he or she have a long history of serious criminal behavior? Would the publicity offered by a position on the Ten Most Wanted list provide a much better chance of catching this person?

When a field office decides to submit a candidate from its jurisdiction for inclusion in the Top Ten list, it sends the candidate's name, picture, criminal resume and any other pertinent information to the FBI's Criminal Investigation Division (CID) in Washington, D.C.

Agents with the CID, in conjunction with people at the FBI's Office of Public Affairs, review the nominees and choose the one they like best. They submit their candidate to the CID's director for approval.

If the director agrees that the candidate meets the selection criteria, the candidate lands on the desk of the deputy director of the FBI. If the deputy director approves the candidate, America's Top Ten Most Wanted Fugitives gets a new member.
