Dale is a Borough of about 1,200 residents located in Cambria County, near Johnstown in western Pennsylvania.  Local problems associated with commercial sex have been cases of child sex trafficking.  While we know of no traditional reverse stings that have occurred in Dale, there have been proactive efforts to arrest men that have bought sex with minors.  For example,  in 2014  a Cambria County man was charged with raping and assaulting at least three children, and also faced prostitution charges due to allegations he paid the children every time he made them perform a sexual act.  The identity of the man was disclosed in the media.
