Abstract

This paper aims to explore the use of social network analysis in identifying the most active suspects and possible crime gangs in the network. The homicide dataset provided by White & Rosenfeld is employed and both the victim network and suspects network are structured by the use of Rstudio. This paper finds that the criminal gang and group of victims in homicide cases could be investigated by conducting centrality analysis and detecting cliques in these two one-mode networks. Moreover, the same features of victims or suspects are significant indicators for distinguishing and discovering victim groups or criminal gangs. As suspects or victims with the same features will be gathered into the same community in the community analysis of SNA, it is more effective to identify victim groups or criminal gangs by analyzing their characteristics, so that crimes can be resolved more efficiently or even prevented.
