Singapore has deployed robots to patrol its streets

Singapore has started to employ robots to patrol its streets to detect undesirable social behaviour.

The robots patrolled a housing estate and shopping centre as part of a three-week trial during September.

Singapore is frequently criticized for its tight controls.

The country is set to increase its use of intrusive surveillance technologies.

Its government says that the use of patrolling robots is a response to an impending labour shortage as the population ages.

Using robots reduces the number of officers needed for foot patrols.
