Digidog is about 70 lbs and is able to run a little over three miles per hour. It can navigate places like staircases and walk over wet and snowy ground. The NYPD’s technical response group shared this much with ABC 7 last year. In October, the department used the robotic dog in a situation where a gunman had barricaded himself in a home in Brooklyn.
Social media is now also capturing the latest technology that is being used by the NYPD. Some of the onlookers were surprised to see “Digidog” and it appears the robot will be appearing more frequently as the police forces around the United States try to find ways to work with communities on fixing the ill will between them and the force.
