Uber is reporting crimes direct to police to boost safety
Uber is reporting crimes directly to the police and will set up a phone line as part of measures to improve safety. Last year, a Metropolitan Police officer said in a letter that passengers were being put at risk because of delays in the reporting of sexual assaults. Uber said its policy of "Pro-actively" contacting the police about serious incidents was already happening in London and would be rolled out across the UK after discussions with other police forces. The Metropolitan Police said it did not wish to comment on Uber's latest announcement, but said it "Would encourage anyone with information about a crime to report it to the police". "Tom Elvidge, General Manager of Uber in the UK, said:"After listening to feedback from drivers, riders, local regulators and the police we're introducing a number of new features and changes to enhance driver and passenger safety.
