Denver Police Enlist Taxi Drivers

March 08, 2012  | 

Denver police have enlisted the help of taxi operators, who have begun logging crime incidents and reporting suspicious activity under the Taxis on Patrol program, reports NPR.

"I think it'll make communities safer as a result of this 'Neighborhood Watch on Wheels,' if you will," Denver Police Cmdr. Tony Lopez says. He says in this era of tight city budgets, partnering with the private sector to keep the streets safer makes sense.

"Actually, it's serving as a force multiplier for us in the delivery of services and public safety," Lopez says.
