A new tool is coming to Port St. Lucie to help residents and officers during dangerous situations. 

The city awarded a federal grant to purchase a new tactical robot. 

The robot will allow police to remotely move around buildings and doors. 

Police can also talk with a barricaded suspect without exposing officers to unnecessary danger.
