Robots that are capable of handling or disarming explosives have become a more common sight in police departments in recent years, due to a Defense Department initiative known as the 1033 Program, which redistributes surplus military equipment. Approximately 200 law enforcement agencies — federal, state and local — across the U.S. have at least one so-called “bomb robot” provided by the 1033 Program, according to a 2015 report published by the Center for the Study of the Drone at Bard College.
