The growing availability of information technologies has enabled law enforcement agencies to collect detailed data about various crimes. Classification techniques can be applied to these data to build decision-aid tools and facilitate investigations of law enforcement agencies. In this paper, we propose an approach for constructing a decision tree based classification model for a crime prediction. Proposed model assists law enforcement agencies in discovering crime patterns and predicting future trends. We provide an implementation and analysis of our proposed method.
