Local police department reminding Pokemon Go players to be safe

Posted: Updated:
MURRAY, Ky -

Pokemon Go, the wildly popular app that has taken the world by storm in just the last week, has some police department urging players to keep safety in mind. That includes the Murray Police Department.

The game involves players traveling in the real world in order to capture virtual creatures.

With that in mind, the Murray Police Department is reminding local players that, "...even though Pokemon characters might be hanging out in certain areas, those areas might be off limits for you. Be sure you have permission to be on any private property before beginning your search there. If an area has gates up and states that it is closed, do not search within that area."

Officers also say that you should not at any time be driving and playing the game. You can read their full release below.
