Willowbrook is a village of approximately 9,000 residents, located in DuPage County in northeast Illinois. In September 2010, the DuPage County Sheriff’s Office received information suggesting a Willowbrook home was being used for prostitution. Officers, supported by members of the Willowbrook and Woodridge Police Departments, contacted the prostituted woman and scheduled an “appointment”. After arresting the woman in her home, police learned that she had appointments scheduled with three other men for later in the day. Officers then conducted a reverse sting operation, resulting in the arrest of the three johns. Each of the offender’s had his name, address, and age released to the local media.
