City of Stanton Adopts Tactic to Fight Prostitution

The Stanton City Council approved the augmentation of its efforts to eliminate prostitution related criminal activity through publishing the names of convicted “Johns” (person who solicit prostitutes) in local media outlets. The City and the Orange County Sheriff’s Department are collaborating to find solutions and resourceful ways of making it difficult for “Johns” to obtain illegal services.

Stanton is enforcing its message to those individuals involved in human trafficking and sex purchaser activities that it is time to stop or face repercussions. Stanton has joined a growing trend toward removing prostitutes from the streets by eliminating the customer demand. In an effort to curb both local prostitution and global human trafficking, the City is mirroring local jurisdictions and agencies, such as the Orange County District Attorney’s Office, who have turned to the publication of names of convicted solicitors to discourage illegal activities.

Both prostitution and the solicitation of prostitutes have been shown to be a serious threat to the health, safety and general welfare of the City, and are prohibited by State law. For additional information call (714) 379-9222. For additional information and to view all convicted Johns in Orange County visit the Orange County's District Attorney's Website.

The City of Stanton announces the formation of the Neighborhood and Business Watch Programs. These programs are designed to provide a forum for the community and Stanton Police Services to interact and exchange information beneficial and crucial to combating crime and blight in the community.

The Neighborhood Watch program is a time proven program that is built on the principle of neighbors helping neighbors. The program works in sprawling neighborhoods to apartment complexes. It only requires one key ingredient, YOU.

The Business Watch Program is modeled on the Neighborhood Watch program. It involves business owners looking out for each other and it provides a forum for the business community to interact with the City, specifically Police Services.
