Advisory: For the Safe Player In You, LASD Shows You How to #PokemonGo

Please see the below Nixle Advisory, provided by LASD's Sheriff's Information Bureau - Newsroom:

No.  Your boss is not delusional.  Neither is your best friend.  They are among the many people hunting to be the next star trainer in the real world of PokémonGO.

Although your personal trainer may be excited for you as you venture burning those calories around many different places, we too enjoy a good workout!  Many of our deputies continue to capture Pokémon and want to share some secrets in becoming the ultimate Ash Ketchum:

-Don’t play while driving.  The last thing we need is a dead Pokémon. 

-Stay vigilant as you play. Distraction can cause injuries, especially when you walk into traffic.

-Play in well-lit areas.  As far as we know, there are no glow-in-the-dark Pokémon.

-If you suspect you are being followed, yell for help and use your phone to call 9-1-1. 

-Gamers are strangers, too.  Just because they like Pokémon does not mean they will be nice to you.  Be cautious of being lured into a bad situation.

-Pokémon have homes too…just not yours.  So if you are not invited, stay out of private property.  We can guarantee you won’t find Pokémon in a jail.

-Although you may not be able to battle your real-life BFF, you can definitely teach him some things.  So have him walk with you.

-And if you see Pokémon near a deputy, let him know!  Pokémon might be telling you to also look for a career!  We are hiring 1-800-A-DEPUTY

 Always be safe and enjoy the game!
