From MPD:

“The Metropolitan Police Department, Third District, is pleased to announce the completion of “Operation off the Streets 2”. We would like to thank all the citizens and stakeholders that have provided prostitution related complaints and or information to us through the various available avenues, to include 911 calls, list serve postings as well as at various community meetings held throughout the city. As a result, members of the First and Third Districts were able to work together along with several local businesses to successfully arrest 60 individuals over the past 36 hours in the Downtown Washington, DC area for prostitution related crimes. The cases closed involved both men and women and ranged from basic street level to internet and hotel prostitution in the NW section of the city. Thank you all for your participation and dedication to working towards resolving these issues in our communities.”
