First Robotic Cop Joins Dubai Police

After bringing in Lamborghinis and Ferraris to patrol roads, Dubai police have enrolled a robotic officer, the first in a unit that aims to make up a quarter of the force by 2030.

The world's first operational police robot stands to attention, on May 31, 2017 

The robotic cop stood to attention Wednesday night at the foot of Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest tower, as tourists and passersby snapped selfie souvenir photos by its side.

Wearing a police cap and moving on wheels, the robot features a computer touch-screen on its chest that can be used to report a crime or inquire about speeding tickets.

The world's first operational police robot arrives ahead of the firing of the Ramadan cannon, which marks sunset and the end of the fasting day for Muslims observing Ramadan, in Downtown Dubai on May 31, 2017. 

The robot, to be deployed mainly at tourist spots, is equipped with a camera that transmits live images to the operations room and it can identify suspects wanted by police.
