Police Arrest 11 Individuals during Prostitution Sting

The Overland Park Police Department conducted a Vice Sting on Wednesday, June 20th, which resulted in the arrests of five prostituted women, and six men for patronizing a prostitute. There was also one person charged with drug possession.

Sex trafficking, drugs and violent crimes are all connected in one way or another. These sting operations are part of an ongoing effort to keep those crimes out of the city limits of Overland Park.

We will continue to aggressively target those individuals who engage in these activities and send the message that prostitution will not be tolerated in Overland Park.
