The authors work in this area [2,6,7], in collaboration with West Midlands Police (WMP), is with the high volume crime of Burglary from Dwelling Houses (BDH). The presented work involves the brokerage metric from social network analysis combined with a geographical component (not present in other approaches) to add to the interpretation of the network and its key players. Our work builds upon several years of experimentation using forensic psychology guided exploratory techniques from artificial intelligence, statistics and spatial statistics.
