Greenwich is a town of under 64,000 residents located in southwestern Connecticut and is a suburb of New York City. The Greenwich Police Department works with Stamford police and other nearby agencies to conduct prostitution operations, including reverse stings. In 2011, undercover officers conducted a web-based reverse sting in which they posted decoy online ads to attract sex buyers. Those arrested had their photos, names, and other identifying information reported in the media. In 2017, police arrested two employees of a Greenwich massage parlor and a sex buyer after raiding the business. Police started investigating the massage parlor on Greenwich Ave. after receiving complaints about prostitution and searched the premises. One man told police he found the business online and agreed to pay for a massage and to have sexual contact with a masseuse, and was charged with patronizing a prostitute. Police also notified the Greenwich Board of Health.
