"Gotta catch 'em all" may be the tag line for Pokemon, but it also is a fitting motto for police, especially for the Manchester, New Hampshire, police department.
The lawmen are using the "Pokemon Go" craze to help whittle down their list of most wanted, WMUR reported.
The department posted on its Facebook page recently that a Charizard just happened to be in the booking area. If you were one of the lucky few listed, you could capture the elusive Pokemon character.
In reality, the lucky list was a list of the area's most wanted.
Manchester police are not the only law enforcement group embracing the "Pokemon Go" craze that's sweeping the world.
Police in Fountain Hill, Pennsylvania, put together a video inspired by the television show "Cops" of their quest to find a MewTwo, The Morning Call reported.
The video in all reality is a public service announcement to give tips to Pokemon collectors to play safely.
The Morning Call reported that the members of the police department who took part in the video may or may not be involved in the game off duty, but they are not allowed to play when they're on the clock.
