Elmhurst is a Cook County suburb of Chicago, with a population of around 45,000. In Elmhurst, prostitution is believed to occur more often indoors than on the streets, and the majority of the prostitution and sex trafficking solicitations are being made over the internet. In response, most of the reverse stings conducted by the Elmhurst Police are web-based operations. The Elmhurst police work closely with the Cook County Sheriff’s Office, which is very active in public education programs, victim advocacy, and collaborate on reverse stings.
