Prostitution Sting Results in 6 Arrests in Overland Park

Police Car

Four women and two men were arrested Wednesday in a prostitution sting in Overland Park, Kan.

According to Overland Park police, in order to combat all forms of prostitution, the Overland Park Police Vice Unit, in conjunction with other department assets, work closely with hotel, motel and apartment operators. Police actively work to educate employees to recognize likely vice activity and encourage them to share the information with authorities.

Police also conduct regular “sting” operations where police officers will pose as prostitutes and customers in order to identify, arrest and prosecute prostitutes, promoters and customers.Through these and other efforts, we expect to send the message that prostitution is not welcome in Overland Park.
