According to Police 1, there is a new Robot Police Officer that will be debuting in the New York City Subway soon. They say...

"The new member, a robot referred to as Knightscope K5 Security Robot, is being leased to the city to patrol the Times Square Subway Station...The 420-pound robot will be leased at $9 an hour...patrol between 12 a.m. and 6 a.m. The robot will record surveillance video but not audio. If someone has a question or concern while in the station, the robot has a button that connects to a live person. That feature is available 24/7"
