General, Criminal Cases, Clustering.


The Binjai District Attorney's Office in carrying out its duties and functions, one of which handles general crimes, where so far the SPDP (Warranty to Commence Investigation) from the police that has entered the Binjai District Prosecutor's Office amounted to approximately 50 (fifty) cases each month. This amount consists of several types of general criminal cases. It is known that the types of general criminal cases amount to approximately 215 (two hundred and fifteen) types of cases, from this data, a method of classifying/clustering is needed from the types of cases that exist each month so that the data can be processed so as to produce the highest, moderate and highest scores. the lowest value of a type of case. The Binjai District Attorney's Office often receives requests for data from other ministries or agencies such as the BPS (Central Statistics Agency), the National Commission on Women and the National Commission on Children in the form of data recapitulation of crimes against women and children as perpetrators of crimes. The Binjai District Attorney's Office has a case handling system where the recapitulation cannot be taken directly but instead collects data manually, because the existing case handling system does not have the recapitulation as requested.The application of clustering has been carried out by many previous researchers. Among them, the K-Means Clustering Algorithm Analysis Mapping the Number of Crimes. The research was carried out using a data mining model in classifying illegal fishing with the K-Means algorithm analysis by determining the shortest distance using the eulclidean distance, more optimal than using the mahattan distance and chbchep distance in classifying student achievement, determining the centroid (central point) in the early stages of the algorithm K-Means is very influential on cluster results as the results of tests carried out using 267 records with different centroids produce different cluster results as well, a clustering model is obtained that can be used for illegal fishing in decision making for illegal fishing crimes high, medium, moderate .
