    San Antonio City Council will be asked today to create what are called ‘prostitution free corridors’ to crack down on the activity in areas where prostitutes are known to frequent. Southeast side Councilwoman Jennifer Ramos says the proposal, which will be floated before the council’s Governance Committee, would designate areas where police and law enforcement will focus on rooting out prostitution. “I want to see if there is a similar way we could attack prostitution, similar to the way we have attacked gang activity in certain parts of town,” Ramos said. Under the District Attorney’s successful gang injunction program, gang...

    Police have a tough job, especially when it comes to vice-squad details. They have to keep areas free of predators in order to allow law-abiding citizens to enjoy public places. However, they also have to take care not to entrap people in behavior that they ordinarily wouldn't commit. In Columbus, Ohio, it seems very clear they crossed that line: Robin Garrison, an off-duty 42-year-old firefighter, was walking in Berliner Park in Columbus, Ohio, in May when he saw a woman sunbathing topless under a tree. He approached her and they started talking and getting comfortable, the woman smiling and resting...

The workers last week had been suspended with pay. Kimball would not say why the employees were being disciplined, only that there was an...

    Great Moments in Police Work Officers of the Texas City Police Department were conducting a prostitution sting April 4. Things were going well -- eventually six hookers were arrested, no doubt the first step toward forever eradicating the problem of prostitution on the Gulf Coast. Around midnight, according to police, the officers observed a Texas City PD patrol car pull up to one of the women posing as a working girl. TCPD officer Lee Marshall, a two-year veteran of the force, was later charged with the class B misdemeanor of solicitation of prostitution. The department is not talking about the...

When police started scrutinizing his personal lifestyle and his professional habits, they found no shortage of reasons for raised eyebrows.George Daniel Ring Jr. — a detective with the King County Sheriff's Office for 26 years — obscured the line between his personal and professional lives more than a few times during his years in vice. He dated strippers, used his unmarked police car to visit a dancer in Canada, counted a madam among his friends and married an escort he'd dated for years."I'm sorry. I have a weakness for...

    A Texas man has been sentenced to four years in prison for posing as a gynecologist (search) — with an office in a self-storage complex. Authorities in Dallas launched an undercover investigation after seeing an ad in a weekly newspaper offering free medical care. A prosecutor set up the undercover sting with an investigator posing as a patient and using a hidden camera. They say Thomas Remo wore a scrub shirt and had some medical equipment in the small kitchen of the storage facility office where he worked.
  • Hookers are using the Internet to keep tabs on undercover cops

    CLAYTON, Mo. -- Hookers are using the Internet to keep tabs on undercover cops. Police departments have used computers for years, but now the oldest profession is going high-tech. St. Louis County vice-squad commander Rick Battelle said he was shocked to find his cell-phone number listed on a hookers-only Web site. Undercover police use mobile phones to set up sting operations. But some of those phone numbers were listed in the database. The hookers' computer files also included the names used by undercover officers and details about their unmarked cars. St. Louis area officers discovered the hookers' Internet database on...

On Friday at 3 p.m., men sat in two vehicles in the lower parking lot of the state park, located just over the Haddam-Middletown border. On Thursday afternoon, several cars were parked alongside Route 154 as well as in the lower lot. Resident Trooper Jim Connelly said that...
