Uber's Special Investigations Unit protects the company before passengers, Greg Bensinger reported for the Washington Post on Wednesday.
The SIU is a team of 80 workers who look into Uber rides that go wrong; drivers who sexually harass their passengers fall under the SIU's jurisdiction.
Uber does not allows the SIU to report allegations against its drivers to police, according to former investigator Lilli Flores, the Post reported.
The SIU is also forbidden from advising Uber riders who have been victims of its drivers to file police reports or seek legal counsel themselves, also according to Flores as reported by the Post.
