The United States Marshals Service 15 Most Wanted Fugitives Program was established in 1983 in an effort to prioritize the investigation and apprehension of high-profile offenders who are considered to be some of the country’s most dangerous fugitives. They tend to be career criminals with histories of violence or whose instant offenses pose a significant threat to public safety.

Current and past fugitives in this program include murderers, sex offenders, major drug lords, organized crime figures, and individuals wanted for high-profile financial crimes.

The list is similar, but not identical, to the Federal Bureau of Investigation's FBI Ten Most Wanted Fugitives list.

Like the FBI list, the USMS list is commonly posted in public places such as post offices. The motto for U.S. Marshals 15 Most Wanted Fugitives: "The Hunt is On". The current list can be seen online at http://www.justice.gov/marshals/investigations/most_wanted/.
