Fremont is a suburb of San Francisco with a population of about 228,000.  Prostitution activity has been well-documented in the city and surrounding communities, and in other areas of Alameda County, for decades. This activity and the problems and ancillary crimes it generates results in complaints to law enforcement agencies from residents and businesses. Among the more serious crimes associated with the local commercial sex market is sex trafficking. Prostitution related violence has also occurred within the city.

Consumer level demand provides the revenue stream for all prostitution and sex trafficking, and has therefore been targeted by local law enforcement agencies as a strategy for prevention and response. Demand reduction tactics used in the town include reverse stings.  A neighboring police department (Vacaville, CA) surveyed for the National Assessment in 2012 noted that the Fremont Police Department conducts periodic street-level and web-based reverse stings.
