Springfield is a city of about 60,000 residents located in western Ohio, between Columbus and Dayton along Interstate 70. Prostitution activity has been well-documented in the city and surrounding communities, and in unincorporated areas of the county. For example, in September, 2019, two women were arrested during a prostitution sting conducted by the Springfield Police Safe Streets Task Force on West Main Street. Both were charged with soliciting in Clark County Municipal Court and booked into jail.  Problems in the city associated with prostitution include homicides of those who sell sex.  Residents often complain to police about prostitution in the city, and in response, the Springfield Police Department has targeted the buyers of sex in reverse stings.
