The Royal Canadian Mounted Police, it is said, “always get their man.” I haven’t checked, but I’m confident that’s been updated. “Always get their human” might not work perfectly in the context of Asimov’s Robot Novels, so let’s settle on “always get the perpetrator.” A perpetrator could be an animal, vegetable, or mineral.
