Nowadays crime is one of major threats faced by our government .Extensive research in criminology has been done on focusing the study of crime and criminal behavior scientifically. It is one of most important field where the applications of data mining techniques are producing fruitful results. Data mining has been using to model crime detection and classification problems. Manually addressing the large amount of the volume of crime that is being committed makes crime prevention strategies a time consuming and complex task. In this paper data mining techniques are examined to predict crime and criminality. We apply machine learning algorithms to a dataset of criminal activity to predict attributes and event outcomes. We will also do comparative analysis between different classification techniques..
