MONTROSE, Colo.-  The Montrose County Sheriff's Office has upgraded its technology and purchased a robot.

Sherriff's officials say the purpose of the robot is to assess a situation before deploying personnel to respond.

The robot is equipped with 360 degrees of camera angles, lights, microphones, infrared cameras, and remote operation.

The robot system is also equipped with a remote monitor for command post operations.

The department decided to prioritize safety and purchase a robot after last year's deputy shooting incident in Maher.
