The New York Police Department is gearing up to deploy several new crime-monitoring robots in Times Square and the city’s subway system, Police Commissioner Keechant Sewell and Mayor Eric Adams stated during a Tuesday press conference.

“We cannot be afraid of [the technology],” Adams said. “If we were not willing to move forward and use technology to properly keep cities safe, then we will not keep up with those who are doing harmful things to hurt New York.”

The department recently added a four-legged “Digi-dog” and a 400-pound K5 Autonomous Security Robot.
