LAPD Trick Task Force Operation

Los Angeles: Los Angeles police officers arrested 13 persons on September 8, 2006, related to prostitution activities near Sepulveda Boulevard and Rayen Street in North Hills. The operation began around 8:00 p.m., and ended at 1:30 a.m., the next morning. Undercover female police officers posed as prostitutes on the street and arrested violators, or "Johns," who stopped and solicited them for sex. Officers also impounded the "John's" cars, using city ordinance 41.70 LAMC that was enacted in 2005. In total nine cars were seized. The City Attorney's Office will determine what fines will be levied against the arrestees to enable them to get their cars back. In some cases, the cars may qualify to be forfeited permanently.

Operations-Valley Bureau vice units conduct periodic prostitution task forces in areas prone to blatant, chronic prostitution and other vice activities. This a full spectrum approach to the problem that seems to be effective at reducing individuals who are prone to soliciting prostitutes in the San Fernando Valley.

The following people were arrested for 647(b) PC- Prostitution.
