Asbury Park is a city of about 15,000 residents located in Monmouth County in northern New Jersey, on the Atlantic shore. Prostitution is a well-known problem in the city, and is the subject of tips and complaints to police. Sex trafficking has also been well-documented locally.

Since consumer-level demand is the primary source of all sex trafficking and problems associated with prostitution, police have attempted to address it. Several substantial reverse stings have been conducted in Asbury Park, resulting in the arrest of 12 – 16 sex buyers each. The identities of the men arrested have been routinely publicized.
