In 1994 the local Department of Public Safety office came to the Foundation and asked for assistance with a project to help promote safety. The project was a robot called ROBO Trooper. A life size robot that was to be used as an interactive device to help stimulate and encourage students to be more safety conscious. The DPS office asked the Foundation for assistance in producing and setting the project in motion. Upon utilizing ROBO Trooper it was discovered that students were much more receptive and eager to learn about safety rules, regulations, and laws. The project was so successful the Foundation further worked with the Texas Department of Public Safety to furnish the life size robots for TDPS Educational & Safety programs in all TDPS regions statewide.
