Pokemon Go - Sweeping the nation?
So who's playing????
Pokémon GO hasn’t even officially launched in Canada yet, but police are already warning the public to stay safe while playing the game. |
In fact, the Richmond RCMP says they’ve had a man wander into their detachment searching for Pokémon in the waiting area.
“I’ve read of this happening in other police jurisdictions as well,” Corporal Dennis Hwang tells Daily Hive. “It just happened to be a police department or police detachment was an area marked as having some Pokémon present.”
Hwang says police have been extra cautious lately given recent events in the United States, and he says it’s important to let people know why you’re there immediately in order to not arouse suspicion.
“It’s good fun, but at the same time, we are very cautious about people attending our detachment.”
“We understand that the game is new and it’s very novel,” he adds.
