To address these issues, the Milford Police Department has conducted two reverse stings– one street-level operation in 2005, and a second web-based operation in 2006. The latter operation, which utilized an undercover female state trooper as a decoy, resulted in the arrest of 5 johns. The men’s names and other identifying information were released by local news outlets.
