[Objective] This paper tries to predict the locations of suspects based on historical activity trajectory data, aiming to locate, track, monitor or arrest the suspects. [Methods] First, we proposed long short term memory (LSTM) and convolutional neural networks (CNN) models to predict crime locations. Then, we used the CNN model to extrct location features of key suspects and analyze their spatial correlations. Finally, we utlized the LSTM model to maintain the temporal continuity and obtain the future locations. [Results] Compared with previous models, the proposed method increased the prediction accuracy from 0.71 to 0.79 with the trajectory GeoLife dataset. [Limitations] The model was only examined with the Geolife dataset. [Conclusions] The proposed method fully exploits the spatial correlation and temporal continuity of data, which improves the effectiveness of public security intelligence analysis.
