How To Confront Enforcement Droids[]

In many large cities throughout the Union of Everett, police and law enforcement are assisted by automated hovering droids, well known as the HADv3 LE series hover drone. These droids are specially programmed for law enforcement duties. If or when confronted by a law enforcement drone, it is important to cooperate in a clear and understanding manner. Most LE drones utilize automated speech to communicate with persons, using basic word commands and has a large vocabulary of key words the drone can understand and respond to. When confronted and if commanded to provide identification, please do so in a timely fashion and present the ID by holding it in front of the drone where it can visually scan your identification card. Some drones provide a slot for sliding a federal ID card through, similar to a credit card, in which the drone may access files and match your face to such files and ID. Drones may ask a variety of questions upon scanning and noting suspicious behavior. Simplified response terms are recommended when answering questions such as:

  • "How old are you"......... Simply respond with your age in numerical form. Providing a birth date will confuse the system and it will be forced to ask the question again.
  • "What are you doing".......Responding in simple terms such as "shopping", "tourism", "vacation", "going to work", "going to school" or other simple responses.
  • "Do you need assistance"........ Respond in two parts for such a question such as answering either "yes" or "no". Answering yes will activate a set of help options in which you may answer "directions", "police", "fire" or "medical". When asking for directions, clearly state either the address of your destination or the name of the location such as "34th Street & Fifth Avenue" or "World Trade Center". The droid may respond to directions help verbally or by using holographic display of a map.

To gain the attention of a drone, walk up to its visual field of view and greet it with a "hello". Drones may also respond to Spanish "hola" and French "bonjour". When finished communicating with a drone, state "goodbye" to inform the drone you are done contacting it.

Drones are designed to detect weapons and narcotics. If a drone spots a weapon on you, it may confront you and ask to see the item. Carefully display the weapon in the droid's visual field. If you are lawfully possessing a firearm, it may request to see your license to own such weapon to confirm you lawful ability to possess or carry the firearm. A legal and unexpired license or permit detected will result in the drone automatically saying "goodbye" and leaving. An unlawfully possessed firearm will result in the drone commanding you to remain present until human police arrive. Illegal narcotics can be detected through scent and chemical sensors. Drones are designed to detect heroin, crack, cocaine, meth, ecstasy, speed, LSD and acid.
