The Metropolitan Police has launched a new online crime reporting service.
The new service allows people to report crimes from their mobiles, tablets or laptops via the Met Police website.
In the last six months alone, the Met has seen a massive 51,000 crimes and incidents reported in this way.
Deputy Assistant Commissioner Mark Simmons said: “It is important the Met moves with the times.
"We know more and more people want the ability to report crime online in a place and at a time that suits them."
You can also pass on information to the police using the 'tell us about' feature on the website.
"I want to reassure people that this is not an automated service," said DAC Simmons.
Each report will be reviewed by a trained call handler, the same people who take 999 calls and then passed on to the Met's Telephone and Digital Investigation Unit - officers will attend if the crime is more serious.
All online reports are aimed to be addressed within 45 minutes of the complaint being made.
“Where needed, we will continue to visit victims of crime face-to-face but online reports for less serious offences mean an officer does not need to visit an address to take details. This frees them up to attend the calls where they are needed most.”
Users should simply hit "report a crime" on the Met website , follow the steps and then receive a reference number at the end.
