This paper focuses on finding spatial and temporal criminal hotspots. It analyses two different real-world crimes datasets for Denver, CO and Los Angeles, CA and provides a comparison between the two datasets through a statistical analysis supported by several graphs. Then, it clarifies how we conducted Apriori algorithm to produce interesting frequent patterns for criminal hotspots. In addition, the paper shows how we used Decision Tree classifier and Naïve Bayesian classifier in order to

To further analyse crimes' datasets, the paper introduces an analysis study by combining our findings of Denver crimes' dataset with its demographics information in order to capture the factors that might affect the safety of neighborhoods. The results of this solution could be used to raise people's awareness regarding the dangerous locations and to help agencies to predict future crimes in a specific location within a particular time.
