Holiday is a city of approximately 25,000 residents located in the greater Tampa area in Pasco County, Florida. Street prostitution is a well-documented problem in several communities in the county (e.g., New Port Richey, Hudson, Tarpon Springs), particularly along the U.S. 19 highway corridor. To combat consumer-level demand for prostitution, the New Port Richey Police Department has collaborated with the Pasco County Sheriff’s Office for undercover operations, including the “One Trick Pony” reverse sting in March 2014. Seven sex buyers were arrested during the operation, and the identities and addresses of arrestees were disclosed and carried in news outlets.
