So Pokemon Go has officially been released, and players everywhere have been scouring the world, hunting down and catching Pokemon. The creatures can pop up anywhere, including a police station in Northern Australia.

Twitter user @isshikisenpai noticed that the Darwin Police Station in Australia houses a Sandshrew, which has prompted the station to take action and release a statement to ensure that prospective Pokemon trainers don’t start wandering through their halls.

“For those budding Pokemon Trainers out there using Pokemon Go — whilst the Darwin Police Station may feature as a Pokestop, please be advised that you don’t actually have to step inside in order to gain the pokeballs.

It’s also a good idea to look up, away from your phone and both ways before crossing the street. That Sandshrew isn’t going anywhere fast.

Stay safe and catch ’em all!”

It’s a wonderful message, asking players to stay out while also giving them a helpful heads up on how they can still catch the Pokemon. I doubt this is going to be the first time something like this happens, either. There are bound to be some more virtual pocket monsters in less-than-convenient locations. Let’s hope that everyone is as cool about it as the Darwin police.
