U ber continues to add new and innovative products to its platform each and every day. As Uber grows and expands into new areas of opportunity, it is paramount that safety con- tinues to be a top priority, working tirelessly to be good part- ners and citizens in all the cities where we operate. Part of that effort was the creation of Uber’s Law Enforcement Operations team. The team’s goal is to make Uber the mobility platform law enforcement trusts the most via engagement, partnership and response. Uber Law Enforcement Operations consists of two teams, Outreach and Response. The Outreach team is made up of former law enforcement professionals turned regional liaisons whose primary responsibility is to engage and partner with law enforcement at all levels. The team achieves these objectives by educating law enforcement on how Uber works as a platform, the data captured, and how to obtain that data during a criminal investigation or critical incident. Outreach partners with law enforcement to create safety initiatives that impact our platform and our communities. The other crucial component to Law Enforcement Opera- tions is The Law Enforcement Response Team. Their primary responsibility is to respond to law enforcement requests for in- formation whether it’s an emergency situation or a legal process request. This team operates on 24/7 basis with personnel around the world working in concert with one another to ensure you get the data you requested, especially during an emergency situation.

With an average of 18 million trips a day, Uber is one of the most widely used trans- portation companies in the world and one of the few technology companies whose platform physically integrates into our communities. Data from the Uber platform can and have helped law enforcement solve a vast array of criminal investigations. Whether it is finding a wanted fugitive, identifying a person who is targeting children, locating a missing juvenile, or contacting a rider or driver who may have been a witness to a violent crime. Uber is committed to working with law enforce- ment to make the communities we operate in safer.
