What does M.O. mean?

Modus Operandi, which basically means Method of Operation.
modus operandi, or method of operation
(wrt a crime, how they did it)
(yw for answer hayan lol)
method of operation
I believe the official definition is modus operandi it is Latin.It means mode of operation
Whilst Modus Operandi might sort of mean Method of Operation, its literal translation is 'Type of Operation', it is less specific than 'Method'.
In the Armed Services, it used to stand for "Medical Officer" or doctor.
M.O. have multiple meanings..
~* It can mean Medics Officer..
~* It can also mean Modus Operandi in Latin and in English Mode of Operation..
~* It can also mean Mobile Originated, a text message sent from a mobile telephone

M. O.
M.O is used to represent 'Modus Operandi' of any operation or actions showing the pattern in which the action or operation is executed. It is used to identify the wrong doers
It's an abbreviation for modus operandi (as several people have already said), and you probably already know you usually hear it on cop shows when they find a body and say, "This is the same MO as the last one," which means the murder was done in the same way as another (with a knife, victim's hands tied and shoes removed, e.g.), and most likely done by the same person.
modus operandi. latin. basically translates to "mode of operation."
An acronym dictionary gave me these options:

mo-modus operandi, from Latin, a criminal investigation term for "way of operating," which may prove the accused has a pattern of repeating the same criminal acts using the same method. Examples: a repeat offender always wore a blue ski mask and used a sawed-off shotgun, climbed up trellises to burglarize, pretended to be a telephone repairman to gain entrance, or set up phony companies to disguise a fraudulent scheme.
