Criminology is an area that focuses the scientific study of crime and criminal behavior and is a process that aims to identify crime characteristics. It is one of the most important fields where the application of data mining techniques can produce important results. A broad analysis of unlawful activity reveals that all criminal behavior shares a common set of universal principles. A micro simulation model can be drawn out by interlinking the universal principles with the attributes of the individuals for profiling the criminal behavior. These principles remain constant; however, they manifest differently for each individual depending on personality, criminal activity, extrinsic factors and the attributes of individuals. This paper elaborates the criminal behavior analysis of the offenders by using data mining techniques.
