Tillman’s Corner is an unincorporated community and census-designated place of approximately 17,000 residents, located south of Mobile near Theodore in Mobile County, Alabama. Street prostitution has been reported in the community for several years, and has generated complaints to law enforcement.
In their efforts to reduce the size and scope of the local commercial sex market, the Mobile Police Department has conducted several reverse stings in Tillman’s Corner. Operations have been conducted at street level, and have at times been conducted in parallel with stings targeting pimps, women engaged in prostitution, and individuals attempting to buy or sell illegal drugs. Since at least 2010, the names of all arrestees picked up in prostitution sweeps have been publicized by local media outlets.
