They will be trained so that if one of them disappears mysteriously while on patrol, the other will immediately initiate an alert and call for backup, instead of [[TheGuardsMustBeCrazy quizzically peering around a corner]].

# I will not include a [[SelfDestructMechanism self-destruct mechanism]] unless absolutely necessary.

Similarly, the ON/OFF switch will not clearly be labelled as such.
