'Operation: Hot Spots' Nets Arrests of 39 Johns in Sacramento County Prostitution Sting

A sting operation by Sacramento Together, resulted in the arrests of 39 Johns in a prostitution and human trafficking sting operation. The arrests were made by several Sacramento County law enforcement agencies during an operation on Wednesday, August 16.

The coordinated effort of "Operation: Hot Spots" was intended to suppress the demand for prostitution by targeting clients, or so-called Johns. The operation was coordinated by Sacramento County District Attorney's Office in conjunction with Sacramento Together.

“Hearing the request of organizations and victims to expand our efforts in fighting human trafficking by targeting sex buyers, our law enforcement agencies are now working collaboratively to meet this challenge," Sacramento County District Attorney Marie Anne Schubert said. "Our county and city law enforcement sting operations should send a strong and unified message that purchasing sex from trafficking victims will not be tolerated in our community.”  

The countywide effort included Sacramento County Sheriff's Dept.; Folsom Police, Citrus Heights Police, and Rancho Cordova Police. Elk Grove Police were not reported as having participated in the sting.
