The Advertiser - - CONFIDENTIAL -

DUBAI: Po­lice could soon be swoop­ing in on crims from the sky. The Mid­dle Eastern na­tion’s po­lice have been caught train­ing on hover­bikes that they claim will help first re­spon­ders reach dif­fi­cult ar­eas more eas­ily.

And the robo­cop­tors could be one day be pi­loted by robo­cops, with Dubai ea­ger to have robots along­side reg­u­lar po­lice by 2030. Hover­surf – a Rus­sian-owned com­pany based in Cal­i­for­nia – has gifted Dubai’s po­lice its first se­rial pro­duc­tion of the elec­tric ver­ti­cal take-off and land­ing ve­hi­cles af­ter a deal was signed last year.
