The paper aims to identify current applications of robotics in law enforcement and military settings, to determine future trends in the use of robotics and to provide a best practices model for law enforcement and military authorities to use when deciding which, if any, robotic application is appropriate for their purposes. The paper outlines the methodology to achieve the above-stated objectives and summarizes its findings in the conclusion.

Introduction and Background

From the Paper:

"The ineffectiveness of this model in responding to both natural and manmade disasters since that time, though, has highlighted the need for identifying improved ways of delivering emergency response services when existing protocols and assumptions no longer apply or the resources upon which they rely are not available. Indeed, today, security is the guiding framework for understanding the modern world in the United States in terms of both law (e.g., the USA Patriot Act, 2001) and in terms of its stated official policy (i.e., the National Security Strategy of the USA, 2002) (Crampton, 2003)."
