Where do the player reports go?

Just wondering how these hackers stay active for so long.
It's a fairly small Aus/NZ community and we can tell who the hackers are down our way so we report them.... But why does nothing happen?

Do a certain number of people need to report them before they get flagged as a person of interest? 
There are active hackers that happily wipe a 20 player firestorm server with long range SMG head shots, most likely reported by most of them yet they are there every night.

So what happens to our reports? Is one players report the same as 20+ in the same night? 

Totally asking for a friend  ;)

    And this is why we can't have nice things, like threads about cheating anymore. Cleaned up the thread of people pretending to know how and where the internal handling of reports takes place.

    As I've been instructed by people from EA, threads and discussion about cheating is currently being closed on the Battlefield forum. Please read the last post in the cheating mega thread about the current situation: https://forums.battlefield.com/en-us/discussion/comment/1551428/#Comment_1551428

    And the blog post: https://www.ea.com/games/battlefield/battlefield-5/news/anti-cheat-in-battlefield-5 for the approach on cheating in general.

    I know the posts above are for BFV and not BF1 but the posts work for BF1 too.

    The moderators and community managers on the forum are not part of the anti-cheat team so we can’t discuss the processes or details of cheat detection or the results of any reports.

    For people who want to report cheating:
    Forums are not the place to report cheating. Don’t do it - “Naming and shaming” is not allowed on the forum. EA has a FAQ that gives excellent detail on how to report cheating, abuse, and harassment for almost every platform: https://help.ea.com/en-us/help/faq/report-players-for-cheating-abuse-and-harassment/
