Ariz. cops to get robots to help in dangerous situations
Three remotely controlled robots will conduct high-risk activities
YUMA, Ariz. — Robotics is coming to the Yuma Police Department, and to Chief John Lekan it’s kind of like a Christmas present, one that will help keep his officers safe in potentially dangerous situations.
According to an agreement approved by the Yuma City Council Wednesday, YPD will receive $77,475 in federal money to purchase three remotely controlled robots to conduct high risk activities.
