The conference finishes tomorrow at which point the robocop will be released onto Dubai streets to tackle real crime.
'The launch of the world's first operational Robocop is a significant milestone for the Emirate and a step towards realising Dubai's vision to be a global leader in smart cities technology adoption', said Brigadier-General Khalid Nasser Al Razzouqi, Director-General of Smart Services for the police in Dubai.
'With an aim to assist and help people in the malls or on the streets, the Robocop is the latest smart addition to the force and has been designed to help us fight crime, keep the city safe and improve happiness levels', he said.
The announcement about plans for a robot police force was made at the 11 Best Police Practices Forum held in Dubai in March.
