Jackson County is located in west central Missouri, and contains the Missouri portion of Kansas City, Independence, and many smaller towns and unincorporated areas. It is the second most populous county in the state, with roughly 700,000 residents. In an effort to reduce the demand for prostitution, police have conducted both street-level and web-based reverse stings. Some of the men arrested are sent to the Veronica’s Voice john school program in Kansas City.
