Robo­cop joins Dubai force

Weekend Argus (Saturday Edition) - - FRONT PAGE -

A ro­botic po­lice­man which can help iden­tify wanted crim­i­nals and col­lect ev­i­dence has joined Dubai’s po­lice force and will pa­trol busy ar­eas in the city, as part of a govern­ment pro­gramme aimed at re­plac­ing some hu­man crime-fight­ers with ma­chines.

If the “Robo­cop” ex­per­i­ment is suc­cess­ful, Dubai Po­lice says it wants the un­armed ro­bots to make up 25% of its pa­trolling force by 2030. – Reuters
