Bristol is located on the eastern border of Pennsylvania, and has a population of about 10,000. Bristol Township police have conducted multiple street-level reverse stings, usually in response to complaints from the community.  Those arrested had their names, ages, and addresses reported to the media. The details of the operations were also described to demonstrate the demand and to deter future johns from buying sex. The crackdown operations often occur in the summer months for several weeks at a time, and include arrests of prostitution persons and brothel investigations and dismantlements.
