In India, as per the statistical report of the year 2018, there were around 1.2
million crimes happening every day, out of which only 10% of the crimes were reported.
Therefore, it is very difficult and challenging for the police department and intelligence
agencies to resolve the crime cases if reported later or with improper and insufficient
information. The well designed crime reporting system eases the job of police and
investigating agencies to proceed with the rapid action. This paper proposes to design an
interactive mobile based crime reporting system(CMS) integrated with map features to
facilitate the tracking of location information of the place of crime. The application can be
used by the public, police officials, and intelligence officials with different levels of access
provisions and functionalities supporting investigation. This will be helpful for the public
to report the crime as and when happened and to review the status of reported crime. The
cop can use the interactive map to reach the location and can use the reported information
for investigation. The higher officials can monitor and keep track of all the cases under
their jurisdiction. The paper also provides an exploratory analysis of test data collected
from the public using the application and the results were discussed.
