Crime reporting is a service that police provide. By the time number of reported crime cases get increases. But law enforcement finds out there is a gap between reported crimes and not reported crimes. Numerous reasons may involve for this gap. It is not a good thing to giving a chance for criminals to stay safe in the community as innocents, and that motivates criminals to do more crimes. Because of that, the community at high risk of being a victim. And as law enforcement, they are unable to do their jobs because many crimes are not getting reported. Sometimes that affects the ongoing investigations too. To fill this crime report gap, some law enforcement launched online crime reporting systems for the public to report crimes. So, this paper discusses how crime reporting systems are going to help law enforcement and ongoing investigations. And the involvement of the public in these systems. The effectiveness of the system to police is also discussed in this paper. This paper has included previous studies to show the impact of crime reporting systems in modern-day policing.
