IS IT BECAUSE WE ADVOCATE AGAINST CORRUPTION? IS IT BECAUSE WE DEMAND OUR RIGHTS AS AMERICAN CITIZENS? IS IT BECAUSE WE TELL ON THE CROOKED COPS FOR BREAKING LAWS AND SEXUALLY ASSAULTING WOMEN? IS IT BECAUSE TAIT BEAT TWO LIFE CASES FOR BATTERY ON OFFICERS? WE SHOULD BE ABLE AS U.S. CITIZENS TO PUT BOLO ALERTS ON THE CRIMINAL COPS!
An all-points bulletin (APB) is a broadcast issued from any American or Canadian law enforcement agency to its personnel, or to other law enforcement agencies. It typically contains information about a wanted suspect who is to be arrested or a person of interest, for whom law enforcement officers are to look. They are usually dangerous or missing persons. As used by American police, the term dates to at least 1960. An all-points bulletin can also be known as a BOLO or BOL, which stands for “be on the look-out“. Such an alert may also be called a lookout or ATL (“attempt to locate“).
