In this paper with the help of logistic regression we answer the question how the effectiveness of police activity has an influence on willing of victims of crime to report. We explain the desire to report with different proxy variables that reflect the effectiveness of police work such as: waiting time of the police arrival to the scene of the crime, the number of contacts between victim and police during the investigation process and the information about who ultimately landed a criminal. The analysis results show that waiting time for the police arrival to the scene of the crime does not effect the evaluation of police investigative performance, adequate number of contacts with police significantly increase the probability to contact police again and the fact that offender is not caught by police dramatically reduces the desire of crime reporting.
