Dexter Police Warn of Pokemon Go Video Game

Jul 15, 2016

The Dexter Police Department would like to express some safety concerns regarding the new game being played by so many known as Pokemon Go. Our department has received complaints from numerous citizens regarding the Pokemon Go players with safety concerns. Complaints have stemmed from players trespassing on private property during game play, players walking out in front of moving motor vehicles not paying attention to their surroundings while playing the game along with other complaints. The Dexter Police Department worked a motor vehicle accident on 07/14/2016 involving a Pokemon Go player being dragged by a motor vehicle subsequently being transported by EMS to a local hospital for their injuries.

If you do choose to play this game, please be aware of your surroundings. Don’t play the game in the roadway, cars aren’t forgiving when hit by one.

Do not try to play the game and operate a motor vehicle at the same time.

Obey all laws applicable by not trespassing on private property trying to play the game.
