Background: The disarticulation of criminal organizations reduces the rates of victimization and insecurity in the population. One of the main characteristics of a criminal organization is the cohesion among its members. This investigation proposes a cohesion index that allows identifying quickly in Big databases individuals suspect to belong to criminal organizations and focus investigation resources on them. Methods: To obtain the index, we analyze the information provided by the Criminal Analysis and Investigative Focus System from the Regional Public Prosecutor’s Office in Biobío and the Investigation Police of Chile. Findings: The results show that the suspects with a higher cohesion index and a higher number of criminal cases commit crimes associated with criminal organizations.
