Abstract: As an alternative method of informing law enforcement organisations about offenses, online crime reporting methods have developed. This paper's goal is to present a thorough analysis of recent research on the efficiency of internet crime reporting systems. The study centres on the benefits and drawbacks of online crime reporting systems, the elements that affect citizens' willingness to use such systems, and the implications of such systems for law enforcement and crime prevention. According to the study, online crime reporting systems have a number of benefits, including speed, accessibility, and simplicity. The reliability of these systems, the accessibility of technological assistance, and the kinds of offences that can be reported online are some of the variables that affect their efficacy. Additionally, some citizens might favour the more conventional ways of reporting crimes, like contacting the emergency services or going directly to the police office.

The analysis also demonstrates that internet crime reporting methods benefit both law enforcement and crime prevention. Law enforcement agencies can react to events more quickly and effectively by giving people the tools to easily and rapidly report offenses, improving public safety. However, the collaboration and teamwork between law enforcement authorities and the general public are essential to the success of internet crime reporting systems.

Overall, the study indicates that online crime reporting systems have the potential to improve law enforcement and crime prevention, but their success relies on a number of variables that must be taken into account. To fully understand the potential of internet crime reporting tools and to determine how to increase their efficacy, more study is required.

Keywords: law enforcement, Crime prevention, Simplicity.
