Crime mapping is the process of producing a geographical representation of crime levels, crime types or the locations of particular incidents. This paper aims to develop a data model for the crime mapping system. The development of a prototype includes the creation of spatial database to cope with the spatial and temporal features which exist in the crime mapping system. The data which was used was collected from police reports from the Kajang Police Department. This data was for crime cases which were reported and opened for investigation between February and March 2013. Classification of the type of crime was based on the index crime which is published in the Malaysia’s National Key Result Area Report 2010. Based on the visualized data on the crime map, and with manipulation of date range or the type of crime on the system, the administration is able to plan for resource allocations and possibly the restructuring of resources either permanently or temporarily. This system could be implemented into the organization to improve the policing strategies by district level police headquarters.
