An Overview of U.S. Efforts to Combat Demand For Prostitution and Trafficking Sex

Most law enforcement operations enforcing prostitution laws are driven by community complaints, and by the role of commercial sex in generating numerous felonies such as aggravated assault, sex and drug trafficking, and negatively impacting neighborhood quality of life. Police in over 1,100 U.S. cities and counties have conducted either street-level or web-based sting operations targeting men buying sex, and courts apply a wide range of criminal and civil penalties to those arrested – including auto seizure, community service, john schools, “dear john” letters, SOAP orders, and driver’s license suspension.
