RADDOG LE Users in a New Era of Community Policing

Detroit, Michigan, March 20, 2024 – Robotic Assistance Devices, Inc. (RAD), a subsidiary of Artificial Intelligence Technology Solutions, Inc., (the “Company”) (OTCPK:AITX),today announced that it has delivered a RADDOG LE to the Taylor, Michigan Police Department. The delivery of RADDOG LE to the Taylor Police Department marks a historic moment in the integration of technology within law enforcement. This milestone underscores RAD’s commitment to revolutionizing the landscape of security and public safety through cutting-edge AI-powered, robotic solutions.

The integration of RADDOG LE by the Taylor Police Department represents a significant advancement in leveraging technology to enhance public safety and streamline operations within the community, supported by a dedicated team of approximately 100 sworn officers.

RADDOG LE, designed and developed by RAD, is a state-of-the-art quadruped robot dog modeled to support law enforcement agencies in a variety of operational scenarios. Equipped with advanced mobility, surveillance capabilities, and patrolling functions, RADDOG LE is poised to become an invaluable asset to the Taylor Police Department and other law enforcement agencies throughout the U.S.

Lt. Jeff Adamisin of the Taylor Police Department commented, “The robotic dog is a situational, defensive tool that gives its user a vision that may not be available without human risk.”

Chief of Police John Blair added, “It puts us face-to-face with the person or situation without a risk of harm. It can act almost like Zoom where you can have interaction without other possible problems.”

RAD’s Sr. Vice President of Revenue Operations, Troy McCanna, an ex-FBI agent of 23 years, expressed enthusiasm about the new addition, stating, “Together, we embark on a journey towards a safer and more technologically advanced future, where RADDOG stands as a beacon of progress and partnership. We sincerely hope that the addition of RADDOG within the Taylor PD will add a layer of safety for their officers, and work to de-escalate dangerous situations.” 

As of 2020, there were 17,985 police agencies, with more than 800,000 sworn law enforcement officers in the United States.

Steve Reinharz, CEO/CTO of AITX and RAD, highlighted, “The Taylor PD plans to exhaustively place RADDOG in real-world situations and share their findings and suggestions as we work to further develop future iterations of RADDOG. This historic relationship represents a significant milestone in the evolution of law enforcement technology, demonstrating how cooperation between public and private sectors can foster positive change for community safety. I truly foresee a future where a RADDOG accompanies every police cruiser on every call.”

RAD’s presentation of RADDOG LE to the Taylor Police Department attracted media attention with several Detroit television stations covering the event. The presence of multiple news outlets highlighted the significance of RAD’s innovative solutions for enhancing law enforcement capabilities in communities like Taylor.
