“On July 14th, 2015, the Metropolitan Police Department began conducting prostitution enforcement in the area that encompasses 9th Street to 17th Street from L Street to N Street, Northwest. The operation has resulted in thirty arrests for solicitation of prostitution since the operation began. The arrests made were all males (“Johns”), and they were all charged with solicitation of prostitution. This is an ongoing operation that will continue to focus on the prostitution complaints in this area.”

and

“Over the past few weekends, members detailed to the Prostitution Enforcement Unit have conducted operations in the downtown areas of the 1000-1300 blocks of K Street, Northwest, in addition to several surrounding streets. As a result, there have been approximately thirty (30) arrests of individuals for Solicitation for Prostitution.

The current enforcement efforts were focused on the “customers” in reverse style operations. These arrests have made a noticeable difference to the community and the enforcement efforts will continue.”
