Abstract:In the context of criminal investigations, information provided by citizen is crucial for the enlightment of a crime. In recent decades, the benefits of cooperation between citizens and police are increasingly being exploited, and the nature of cooperation has also changed. In particular the digitalization has given rise to many new opportunities for citizens to become active to participate. To further promote the cooperation, the underlying factors of motivation are explored based on the Community Engagement Theory. Using an to the specific context adapted questionnaire, the psychological factors self-efficacy, response efficacy and empowerment were identified to exert an influence on the intention of citizen to participate in criminal investigation. In contrast to the CET, no significant influence of the factors affect, risk perception, trust and experience was found.
