“Prostitution is illegal and those who commit or who derive proceeds from this crime in Polk County can expect to go to jail,” said Sheriff Grady Judd. “The negative social costs of prostitution hurt families, children and communities. We will continue to investigate and arrest those involved in prostitution.”
In response to citizen complaints about prostitution activity in the area of North Wabash, on Saturday, December 1, 2012, Polk County Sheriff’s Office undercover detectives conducted an undercover operation targeting prostitution. Detectives arrested 10 suspects.
