Lake Forest Park is a city of approximately 13,000 residents, located just north of Seattle in King County, Washington. Prostitution in the city has generated complaints to police.  In an effort to reduce the demand for prostituted women, police began conducting reverse stings. In addition, the police are able to issue “stay out of areas of prostitution” orders.
