Holly Hill is a city of 12,000 located on the eastern shore of Florida, where “street prostitution has been a major problem for decades,” according to police and residents.  In 1989, the Holly Hill Police Department conducted a street-level reverse sting using an undercover female officer as a decoy. Those arrested had their identifying information reported to the media.  Police have also made “Problem Report Forms” available to residents,  so that they may contact the department’s Citizen’s Complaint Bureau with any tips or concerns.
