Knightscope Announces New Sale in Missouri
A 100-year old, 4th generation recycling center will soon have the added protection of a K5 Autonomous Security Robot (ASR) watching over its Missouri facility. This new client signed a contract with Knightscope to help secure the ever increasingly valuable metals that pass through the facility such as those found in catalytic converters. Law enforcement and other converter recyclers are collaborating in an effort to reduce thefts of certain auto parts that also lead to other, more serious crimes. “It’s expensive. This is a national security issue. It’s a public safety issue. It’s an economic issue,” said former Houston and Austin Police Chief Art Acevedo. Knightscope will bring an additional layer of security to its new client in an effort to help this responsible recycler keep similar thieves at bay.
