Robot Dogs Join NYPD

New York City officials will be employing three new high-tech policing robots to fight crime, including a robot dog the FDNY will use for search-and-rescue missions.

The four-legged robot, “Digidog,” will “save lives,” NYC Mayor Eric Adams announced during a press conference.

The remote-controlled robot, also known as “Spot,” is manufactured by Hyundai-owned Boston Dynamics.

The $75,000 robot dog is designed to perform inspections in dangerous areas and monitor construction sites and is touted by Boston Dynamics as a public safety tool.

Spot can also sniff out dangerous gasses and collect structural safety data, the New York Post reports.
