Fairfield police host Pokémon Go! tournament

Police in Fairfield are hosting a new popular phone game tournament this month as a part of their 2016 Summer Matters! education campaign.

The Police Activities League, also known as PAL, said they will host a Pokemon Go! live action tournament from July 19 through the 21 for Fairfield, Suisun, and Travis students enrolled in seventh grade and above.

PAL officials said that members will compete in teams to find as many characters as they can using geocaching technology, which combines outdoor play with team-building and problem-solving.

According to PAL officials, participants are required to purchase a $10 annual membership in order to participate in the summer programs.
