Ocean View is a city in Sussex County, Delaware with a population of under 3,000 residents. Prostitution has been a substantial problem in the city for years. Police have received complaints from residents and businesses about prostitution, and among the attempts to address commercial sexual exploitation have been the use of tactics targeting demand. In the 1990s, over 100 prostitution arrests per year were made, but reports did not separate the number of sex buyers versus prostituted persons.
