Dubai gets its first robot policeman

The Dubai Police was already a force to be reckoned with thanks to its fleet of luxury and high performance cars, and now criminals in the city will have to contend with Robocop. According to the reports that the police force has unveiled the world’s first operational robot policeman. The robot has officially joined the line of duty and was greeting guests at the 4th Gulf Information Security Exo and Conference (GISEC). 

"With an aim to assist and help people in the malls or on the streets, the Robocop is the latest smart addition to the force and has been designed to help us fight crime, keep the city safe and improve happiness levels," said Brigadier-General Khalid Nasser Al Razzouqi, Director-General of Smart Services at Dubai Police.

While the robotic policeman deployed by the Dubai Police may not look as intimidating as Alex Murphy from the RoboCop franchise, the autonomous robot is still 170cm tall and weighs 100kg.
