Richmond County includes the city of Augusta, Georgia, and several smaller communities.  Police say that prostitution is a problem locally, and they have used tactics to combat demand, primarily reverse stings and shaming.  Sex trafficking is also well documented locally.  However, they say they have other serious problems too, and that they seldom do reverse stings because they are labor intensive and police have competing demands on their time and resources.
