In this work, we propose methods for automated detection of social structure from transcripts of conversations. There are two kinds of social structure that we focus on: (1) Identifying small groups of people who have close cooperation (2) Detecting high status individuals within a group. We tested our methods on transcripts of the HBO television show, “The Wire.” Our methods were effective with an accuracy of more than 80%.

Key words: Social Networks, Criminal Organization and Hierarchical Structure
