An abbreviation that is widely used in texting and chat, and on Facebook and elsewhere on the internet, but what does APB mean in slang?
Most Common APB Meaning
APB stands for All-Points Bulletin.
An APB is issued by U.S. or Canadian law enforcement agencies 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. It is also used informally on social media when you are seeking help from others to track someone down.
I’ve issued an APB for Matthew, who didn’t show up at the party last night.
