Clarksville Police conducts Prostitution Sting

 

Clarksville Police Department - CPDClarksville, TN – On Friday, March 20th, 2015, Vice and Narcotics agents of the Clarksville Police Department’s Special Operations Unit conducted operations targeting prostitution on backpage.com . Eight persons were charged with Soliciting Prostitution.

The focus of the operation was centered on those who solicit prostitution in an effort to not only reduce this type of activity but to prevent assaults and robberies against the solicitors that have become commonplace with online prostitution as they become easy targets when they are directed to locations that are controlled by the prostitutes.

Captain Gipson, the Special Operations Unit Commander, stated, “These types of operations are ongoing with a fair warning to those that solicit prostitution online, the person on the other end of that web page just might be the police”.

Agent Steinlage and Agent Lee are the lead investigators.
