Montreal Police Have Started Playing Pokémon GO

No one can resist. Not even the law.
Montreal Police Have Started Playing Pokémon GO

Whether you love it or hate it, Pokémon GO has definitely had certainly led to some interesting situations since it was released in Canada.

Inactive kids are spending their days walking outside. Businesses are seeing more pedestrian traffic. Church's are offering charging stations so people can play longer, and even cops can't resist getting in on the action.

You've probably seen pictures like these in recent weeks of the massive gathering that have even happening near Atwater.

The crowds have gotten so big that the police have been patrolling there regularly to make sure that people aren't bothering the public and that they are staying out of the streets.

And while they're there, even they can't resist catching a few Pokémon while they're at it.


Personally I find this hilarious as long as the cops aren't spending their entire shifts playing Pokémon GO.

It may sound far fetched but police forces in other countries have already been banned form playing the game because they were spending more time playing than doing actual police work.
