Armored police vehicles
The Lewiston, Maine police department unveiled the MARCbot IV, or Multi-Functional Agile Remote Controlled Robot, fresh from the U.S. Army and complete with an Xbox controller.
The vehicle and the robot were free to the LPD from the Obama administration as a reallocation of military surplus.
Elgin, Illinois will vote this week to approve the police department’s request for an armored vehicle.
