Uber announced Wednesday a new online tool to help make investigation requests more efficient, according to a news release from the company.
The tool is for law enforcement and enables police to gather critical information securely and quickly from out in the field.
It's used as a resource to support law enforcement during investigations, whether it's a rider who's a witness or a driver who's a victim of a crime.
"Uber believes we have a responsibility to appropriately cooperate with law enforcement investigations while also protecting the privacy of our users.
Currently, the company's law enforcement outreach team is available to assist police 24/7.
