On Wednesday, February 21, 2018, members of the Worcester Police Vice Squad were working in the Main South area. During the course of the evening, several undercover male and female vice officers were deployed to different locations within the Main South. The officer’s goal was to target the prostitution problem that has plagued the area. Specific locations were determined based on information that was provided from neighborhood crime watch meetings, interviews with community leaders, local business owners as well as the residents that live in the affected areas.
The vice squad strategies have lately been to target the demand side of the problem and place greater emphasis on going after the “Johns” that travel through the area.
