History
PURCHASED AND DONATED TO THE LETHBRIDGE POLICE DEPARTMENT BY THE MINERS CLUB OF LETHBRIDGE, AS A CENTENNIAL YEAR COMMUNITY SERVICES PROJECT. PRESIDENT OF THE CLUB AT THE TIME WAS JIM BROWN, AFTER WHOM THE ROBOT WAS NAMED. ROBOT USED BY THE CRIME PREVENTION UNIT, TO TEACH CHILDREN ABOUT SAFETY, DEALING WITH STRANGERS, DRUGS, BIKE SAFETY, ETC. IT WAS UNVEILED SEPTEMBER 23, 1985. AT THE TIME IT WAS CONSIDERED TO BE A TECHNOLOGICAL BREAKTHROUGH IN ROBOTICS, AND CONSIDERED THE EDUCATIONAL VEHICLE FOR THE 80'S TO PRESENT INFORMATION TO THE YOUNGER GENERATION, AS WELL AS ADULTS. LETHBRIDGE WAS THE FIRST CITY WEST OF ONTARIO TO USE THE ARES ROBOT FOR CHILD SAFETY EDUCATION. THE ROBOT COST $30,000 PLUS AN ADDITIONAL $5,000, DONATED BY THE MINERS' CLUB, TO TRAIN OFFICERS ON HOW TO RUN IT. CONSTABLE VINCE ERDOS ATTENDED TRAINING SESSIONS IN TORONTO AND ATLANTA, AND SERVED AS THE MAIN OPERATOR OF THE ROBOT. HISTORY, PHOTOS, AND SERVICE MANUALS TRANSFERRED TO ARCHIVES. IN 2006, IT WAS DISCOVERED THAT BOTH SIDE RUBBER WHEELS HAD DISINTERGRATED AND WERE NO LONGER ABLE TO SUPPORT THE OVERHEAD WEIGHT OF THE ROBOT. THE WHEELS WERE, THEREFORE, BAGGED FOR FUTURE REFERENCE AND KEPT IN ASSOCIATION WITH THE ROBOT. *UPDATE* IN 2014 COLLECTIONS ASSISTANT JANE EDMUNDSON CONDUCTED A SURVEY OF ART OBJECTS, INCLUDING SOME DONATED BY THE CITY OF LETHBRIDGE POLICE SERVICES. FOR A BRIEF ACCOUNT OF THE LETHBRIDGE POLICE COLLECTION, SEE RECORD P19960112001.
