There are considerable and swelling numbers of police robots performing many different roles throughout the world in countries such as China, Russia, USA, UK, Israel, Japan, India, Canada, Australia, South Africa and South Korea. They perform tasks ranging from assisting in hostage release to providing protection for tourists. Some are armed with lethal weapons and several have non-lethal weapons like Tasers, water cannon, pepper spays and nets. Many are used for surveillance. Some have autonomous or semi-autonomous function while others are under tight human control. There are more and more reports on a daily basis of the police use of robots and new robots being added to the repertoire all the time.
