How to find out top 10 density spots

It might sound like a stupid question, but how can I determine (i.e. extract) the top 10 highest density areas on a map.

The question seems simple: given a population (e.g. 911 calls), how can I determine the top 10 highest density zones (e.g. 1 km radius)?

The density tools give me a raster, so I can "see" where the highest density spots are... but how do I derive/calculate the top 10 spots from a raster? I've been playing with nearest neighbours, etc. but now I need some input!
