Howard’s Grove is a small city of about 3,000 residents located south of Green Bay, Wisconsin near Sheboygan.  To our knowledge, Howard’s Grove has not conducted typical reverse stings, using a police decoy or an online decoy advertisement to entice johns and gather evidence necessary for arrest.  However, there was one instance of a creative variation on a web-based reverse sting.  Police observed an ad placed by a john seeking a prostituted woman.  Police responded to the ad using a female officer as a decoy.  They arrested the man and provided his name, photo, and other information to news outlets.
