Huntington is a town of approximately 200,000 residents, located on the north shore of Long Island in New York. In an effort to identify and apprehend sex buyers, the Suffolk County Police Department has conducted at least one street-level reverse sting. The operation, undertaken in August 1998, utilized an undercover female officer, who posed as a decoy. As a result, six men were arrested and charged with solicitation. Their identities were not made available to the public.
