Duluth is a city with a population of approximately 31,000 located about 25 miles north of Atlanta.  Prostitution activity has been known to occur in Duluth; to combat this, reverse stings have been conducted since at least 2011. In one operation, a teacher was arrested and fined $1,300 after being caught trying to buy sex online. In addition to being placed on administrative leave at work, he also had his identity disclosed in local media, where his name and reason for arrest were published. In other instances, resident complaints led police to conduct investigations of other known prostitution activity, resulting in several arrests.
