Crimes Reported Against Uber Drivers Since 2012

Question

Please could you tell me how many alleged cases of criminal activity by uber drivers have been reported since the taxi app launched in the UK in 2012.

Ideally I would like this information broken down by category of crime.

I would specifically like to know how many cases of sexual assault, including rape, have been reported against uber drivers in the same time period.

I would like this figure broken down by offence and year (and where possible by month).

Answer

Please see the details provided in the table below.

The information has been identified by using a text search of crimes where UBER has been mentioned. This will therefore not guarantee accuracy and is not suitable for comparison with other Forces.

Please note this information relates to allegations only, which may not have been substantiated.
