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 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.

“Our aim is to raise the number of robots to 25 percent of the police force by 2030,” said Brigadier Khaled al-Razzooqi, head of Smart Services at Dubai police.

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.

The main purpose is to “find a new way to deal with people”, said Razzooqi, while acknowledging that robots could not replace humans on tasks such as making arrests.

Police in Dubai, a growing tourism hub which attracted nearly 15 million visitors last year, have previously attracted media attention by parading expensive luxury cars as patrol vehicles.

    The other day, while I was at work, my cousin stole my apple ipad and tested to see if
    it can survive a thirty foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My iPad is now broken and she has
    83 views. I know this is entirely off topic but I had to share it with someone!

    I have been surfing online more than 4 hours today,
    yet I never found any interesting article like yours.
    It’s pretty worth enough for me. In my view, if all webmasters and bloggers made good content as you did, the
    internet will be a lot more useful than ever before.

    I believe what you published was very logical. But, think on this, what if you were
    to write a killer headline? I mean, I don’t want
    to tell you how to run your blog, however what if you added something that grabbed people’s attention? I mean First robotic cop joins
    Dubai police – OfofoZone is kinda plain. You should glance at Yahoo’s front page and watch how they create post headlines to grab viewers to click.
    You might try adding a video or a related pic or two to get
    people interested about what you’ve written. Just my opinion, it could make your posts a little livelier.
