Osceola County is an inland area in central Florida, south of Orlando, with a population of roughly 271,000 that includes the city of Kissimmee.  Prostitution and sex traficking of children are well-documented problems in the county.   In an effort to reduce prostitution, the Osceola County Sheriff’s Office conducts reverse stings – sometimes in collaboration with city police departments within its jurisdiction.  The identities of the men arrested are released to local news outlets.
