Bay Point, formerly West Pittbsurg, is a census-designated place of approximately 21,000 residents located an hour east of San Francisco near Pittsburg and Antioch in Contra Costa County, California. In recent years, complaints about prostitution from residents and businesses, as well as reports of homicide cases involving prostituted women, have encouraged the Contra Costa County Sheriff’s Office to adopt new strategies that target sex buyers in addition to sex sellers. In their efforts, CCSO officers have conducted a handful of street-level reverse sting operations to arrest would-be johns. The names and identities of the offenders are not typically released to the public.
