A criminal network is a kind of social networks with both secrecy and efficiency. The hidden knowledge in criminal networks can be regarded as an important indicators for criminal investigations which can help finding the criminal's relationship and identifying suspects. However such criminal network analysis has not been studied well in an applied way and remains primarily a manual process. To assist investigators to find criminals relationship, criminal leader, and identify suspicious guys of a conspiracy, we built a comprehensive indicator model using methods developed in the field of Social Network Analysis (SNA). A simulation is done on a large office from open source reports and the ranked list with respect to comprehensive indicator indicates that we provide a reasonable ranking based on the proposed model.
