Anderson is a city of roughly 29,000 residents located in western South Carolina, about 20 miles southwest of Greenville. The city has had a substantial prostitution problem, as indicated by the level of complaints police receive from residents and businesses, the presence of neighborhood groups focused on addressing prostitution, and the presence of nonprofit organizations devoted to working with survivors of commercial sex in Anderson. Reverse stings have occurred in the city since at least 2005, and probably before. In a 2009 operation, one man was arrested for soliciting during a sting operation.
