A group gathers around Clackamas County Sheriff Curt Kessler (seated), as he negotiates a small, portable robot through an adjacent building, which was used as a mock bomb-making laboratory, during a joint-agency exercise held at Camp Bonneville in Vancouver, Wash., March 20.

Robots carrying cameras with live video feed and other sensors are used for reconnaissance in locations deemed too hazardous for humans.

Kessler and his fellow officers were joined by the Oregon National Guard’s 102 Civil Support Team, Portland Police Bureau’s Explosive Disposal Unit, Oregon State Police Explosives Unit, Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms, and the FBI.
