|IT Based Tactics||✓|
Millry is a town of about 700 residents located in Washington County, AL. Prostitution and sex trafficking have been documented in the area, and among the more serious crimes associated with the area’s commercial sex market is child sex trafficking.
Among the efforts to address such problems have been the use of tactics meant to combat the consumer level demand for commercial sex. Public identity disclosure and loss of employment are consequences of buying sex that have occurred within the city. For example, in January 2021, a Millry police officer resigned and was faced with nine felony charges, including three counts of soliciting prostitution. A grand jury indicted him, and the Washington County Sheriff’s Office led the investigation. The officer resigned soon after learning of the investigation.
