North Union Township is a community of approximately 12,000 residents in southwestern Pennsylvania, near Uniontown. Members of the community have complained to police about prostitution in the city, and cases of the sex trafficking of minors have been reported in the township and surrounding areas back in the 1980s. Police have responded by conducting undercover operations. Included in their methods are web-based reverse stings, used in an effort to address the demand component of prostitution. One reverse sting was conducted by a drug task force, which was involved because of the links between prostitution, drug addiction, and drug trafficking.
