He's short for a deputy, and kind of furry, but he can drive his patrol car as well as anyone in the Imperial County Sheriff's Office.
Deputy Do-right's strong points are not patrolling or questioning suspects, but he is a good talker, especially with children.
Deputy Do-right is a German shepherd robot that drives a small patrol car and he's a hit with children in Imperial County.
Do-right was sworn in Tuesday at the county Board of Supervisors meeting by Sheriff Harold Carter. Do-right needed the help of 5-year-old Brandon Lucas Rivera of Holtville to lift his right hand to take the oath of office.
Do-right came to the Sheriff's Office several months ago but didn't have a name. When it comes to naming cuddly robot dogs, children are more talented than adults, so the department sponsored a naming contest.
