Salt Lake County is located in northern Utah.  Its population of approximately 1,070,000 includes Salt Lake City and many suburbs and unincorporated areas in the metropolitan region the city state capitol.

Sheriff’s deputies have been conducting periodic reverse stings in the county.  For example, in May 2018 a four day prostitution sting operation in the Salt Lake City area resulted in the arrest of “dozens” of men who tried to buy sex from undercover female officers who walked the streets.  During the operation, which took place throughout the Salt Lake Valley, officers searched hotel rooms and the streets for those involved with prostitution.  After some of the reverse stings, police have released the identities of the men arrested.  Some of the men arrested are routed to the Salt Lake City john school program.
