Related to material in Arm of the Law
by Harry Harrison

Excellent short story details the arrival of an experimental police robot in a dusty little burg on Mars. Nineport is just big enough to have a spaceport and a small police force. The whole town is in the back pocket of a local criminal mob; how will the status quo change when a by-the-book bot takes to the streets?
