In effort to reduce the demand for prostitution in the area, police have conducted investigations to apprehend sex buyers and sex traffickers in response to citizen complaints about prostitution in the city. For example, in 1987, in response to numerous citizen reports of suspected prostitution and drug trafficking activity at a local motel, police initiated an investigation that resulted in the arrest of nine individuals for prostitution-related charges. According to reports, a pair of adjoining rooms at a local motel were being used for prostitution activity. Once undercover officials were offered prostitution acts in exchange for money, arrests were made. One man was arrested for soliciting for prostitution, criminal conspiracy to violate the state’s prostitution laws, and a second offense possession of cocaine. Officials also confiscating the sex buyer’s car. Additionally, an adult male and a 16-year-old boy were arrested for conspiracy and six women were arrested for prostitution. The identities and ages of arrested offenders were included in reports by local media outlets.
