LAPD Task Force Makes Numerous Arrests for Prostitution Activities

Los Angeles: On March 6, 2009, a LAPD prostitution task force operation resulted in a sizable number of arrests for prostitution activity in the area of Lincoln Boulevard and Indiana Avenue.

The seven-hour operation started around 8:00 p.m.  Undercover female police officers posed as prostitutes on the street and then arrested violators who stopped and solicited them for sex. Undercover male officers also conducted an outcall operation from a hotel on Airport Boulevard by posing as “Johns” and utilizing the internet to contact prostitutes on websites where sexual services were being solicited.

The LAPD Pacific Division Vice Unit, in conjunction with personnel from Hollywood Vice, West Los Angeles Vice, the Detective Support and Vice Division, Jail Division and the Department’s Scientific Investigation Division comprised and conducted the task force. Prostitution task forces are conducted periodically in areas prone to prostitution and other vice-related activities.
