Unsub stands for "UNknown SUBject".

It is used to refer to a suspect in a criminal investigation. The subject is usually suspected of a specific crime: serial killing, rampage killing, arson, etc.

The term "unsub" is used by the International Response Team as a code-name for the criminals they investigate on Beyond Borders.

This process is repeated with the BAU team featured in Criminal Minds.
