Don’t let Pikachu and friends lead you to the police


Halifax Regional Police is offering safety tips in response to the recent Canadian release of the popular Pokemon Go app.


At approximately 9:20 p.m. on July 21, HRP issued a man a ticket in the south end of Halifax for operating a motor vehicle while using a cellular device. Through the investigation, officers determined the driver was playing Pokemon Go. 


Here are some tips:

  • Don’t drive or ride your bike, skateboard, etc. while interacting with the app…you can’t do both safely.
  • Pay attention and look where you’re going.
  • Play in pairs or as a group to ensure your safety.
  • If you’re travelling in an unfamiliar area, make sure you tell someone where you’re going.
  • Don’t trespass onto private property
  • Have fun AND stay safe!
