The Law enforcement agencies like that of police today are faced with large volume of data that must be processed and transformed into useful information and hence data mining can greatly improve crime analysis and aid in reducing and preventing crime. The purpose of this study is to construct predictive models that could help in the effort of crime pattern analysis with the aim of supporting the crime prevention activities at the Hossaena town police office. For this study, a six-step hybrid knowledge discovery process model is followed, due to the nature of the problem and attributes in the dataset. The classification technique such as J48 decision tree and Naive Bayes used to build the models. Performance of the models is compared using accuracy, True Positive Rate, False Positives Rate, and the area under the Relative Optical character curve. J48 decision tree registers better performance with 96.34% accuracy. Lastly for extracting the knowledge the researcher develop the prototype for the user for support the decision which crime is assigned under the serious, medium or low for this purpose the researcher generate the prototypes.
