18 Arrested During 2-Day Prostitution Sting

The Overland Park Police Department’s Vice Unit is continuing to combat all forms of prostitution within the city.

This past week, they conducted a two day sting operation which resulted in the arrests of 12 people for prostitution, four individuals for patronizing a prostitute, and two were charged with promoting prostitution.

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.
