If the street numbers genuinely have dropped from 30 to Zero, as per the detailed article, does that not provide a strong case for serious dosh to be committed to similar projects ?

Lots of parlours/flats opened up in ipswich and now they want to close them down, so i guess the street scene will reappear or maybe more ladies will be seen around the docks...... just like they are now....

Ipswich Police Defeat Street Prostitution by Targeting Clien

Postby admin » 23 May 2012, 18:17

The University of East Anglia has praised a crackdown on prostitution in Ipswich after five sex-workers were murdered in the area. After closely studying the strategy put in place by Suffolk Police, researchers said it could be repeated elsewhere with good effective.

The crackdown comes after five prostitutes were murdered in 2006, Steve Wright, of Ipswich, was jailed for the killings.

Dr Fiona Poland, who led the UEA research team, said: "What worked particularly well was the drive to cut out on-street prostitution by targeting the clients - and not the sex workers themselves. We found no evidence that the problem had moved on to the streets beyond Ipswich.

"The joined-up approach of all the agencies involved mean that they now have a clearer strategy to tackle off-street working, trafficking and to identify both young people at risk and their potential abusers."

So having moved on the clients:

A. where are the clients (legally) seeking their satisfaction now ?
B. how have the girls replaced their income without resorting to other il-legal practices ?
C. how does this make it easier for the police to spot potential perverts/murderers , given their cctv shots are now of empty steets devoid of suspect mug-shots ?

right here we go....


What they actually did was "suggest" that the ladies should work in flats/parlors and operated a tolerance of these to keep the girls off the streets.

Then they "advised" the flats/parlors to advertise in the evening star adult section to attract business.

after 2 years they began "advising" the evening star that they should seek full documentation of the advertisers as at one point you could walk in place advert pay for it an walk out.(we already supplied this) and then slowly the paper stopped taking the adverts on the "advice" of the police.

Then things started to change, The police started to raid the flats/parlous (angels is now closed & many other flats have gone) So now a few ladies have been spotted working the docks and the old portman road area. The police are cracking down on the ladies working on the streets again BUT if they had left the flats/parlors alone we wouldn't be back to this problem.

ok rant over......

Thanks Anglia for the update.

I am sure that many posters here agree with your (implied) view that the original idea of encouraging girls to move off the steets into a safer environment was the right one.

But then for the authorities to starts hassling once again -what a nonsense on their part !

I turned to prostitution to fund my alcohol addiction

Postby admin » 11 Apr 2013, 20:34

A university student has admitted turning to prostitution to fund her alcohol addiction. Emma Gould became hooked on alcopops at just 15 years old and was soon downing up to 100 units a day - 86 more than the recommended weekly amount for women.

The 22-year old, from Ipswich, has even admitted she spent a £30 per week Education Maintenance Allowance to fund her addiction, which saw her downing seven cans of lager a week at school between lessons to cope with exam and essay stress.

She said she turned to prostitution after wasting a staggering £3,000 of her student loan on her binges - which could include two litres of vodka, a bottle of wine, a litre of cider and six cans of lager.

Miss Gould, who spent 10 months in rehab, said: 'I'm disgusted by what I did. I was putting myself in terrible danger, but I was so desperate - that's what addiction can do.'

By the time she left home at 18 to study Biomedicine at university she was dependent on alcohol and admitted her binges lead to 18 one-night stands by the time she was 21.

She said: 'I thought people preferred me tipsy - I was a fun drunk. Once I drank vodka in the morning to cope with a presentation and it became a habit. I'd wake up with the shakes and nausea until I drank. I'd stumble into lectures but sit quietly so no one noticed. I might have two litres of vodka, a bottle of wine, a litre of cider and six cans of lager, starting at 7am and downing more between lectures in the loos. On those days I'd usually collapse into bed at 6pm nable to stand.'

Miss Gould said while her university grades soon plummeted she managed to keep up her attendance and fool her friends and family by disguising her pallid skin with makeup. But by November 2011 Emma had spent all her money on alcohol and resorted to desperate measure to get her next fix.

She said: 'It sounds crazy looking back, but I started thinking about having sex for money. Initially it was unthinkable. But it felt like my only option, my withdrawal symptoms were unbearable.'

After downing almost two litres of vodka, Emma went to Ipswich's red light zone - the area where serial killer Steven Wright murdered five prostitutes in 2006.

She said: 'I felt a little nervous, but I wasn't scared. The drink gave me more confidence. It was freezing cold so I wore leggings, pumps and a nice top underneath my coat, hoping to appear inconspicuous.' Within an hour Emma had been picked up by a 50-year-old man in a suit who paid her £50 to have sex in his car. Incredibly, she was too drunk to insist on a condom.

Soooo sad and a bit scary. Addiction is a terribly destructive illness. I hope she has managed to avoid any lasting mental or physical ailments from her experiences. [smilie=kiss of love.gif]

At 22 as well. I really hope she's getting her life back together and as Minxy says, that she has no lasting side effects from what she did.

Re: Ipswich: New bid to tackle prostitution is unveiled

Postby admin » 13 Aug 2013, 00:18

More than 220 teenagers identified as being at risk of slipping into the dangerous world of the sex trade have had their lives rescued since the launch of Ipswich’s prostitution strategy. Since the scheme began six years ago, street
prostitution and kerb crawling has been eradicated from the town thanks to joint partnership work. However off-street prostitution and sexual exploitation remains an issue, according to police.

The strategy, which has received national acclaim, was launched in the wake of the murders of five sex workers in Ipswich by Steve Wright in 2006.

The Make A Change team, which is made up of multiple agencies and works with vulnerable adults and young people, has provided support to 222 young people at risk of exploitation since it was set up in 2007. They are currently helping 27 teenagers who are in danger of entering the sex trade. They have also worked with 196 adults who were leading chaotic lifestyles, and now the majority are living independently free from violence.

Identifying routes out of prostitution and preventing vulnerable people from getting into the sex trade had also been a success, with nearly 300 young people being recently helped, they added. Providing suitable accommodation for women and helping them kick their drug habits were some of the areas identified as being effective.

Prof Fiona Poland, who specialises in social research methodology, said: "You can't say the project will have brought about a 100% change.

"It halved the [criminal justice] costs, it reduced arrests by three quarters. Of the women we worked with they were generally in insecure housing situations - they were all found housing, so there were many, many ways in which the project worked.

"We're bringing together people from the voluntary sector, the council, criminal justice agencies and health and social services to look at how that multi-agency working can be sustained in the longer term."

Five women who worked in the sex industry in Ipswich were murdered after disappearing over a six-week period in 2006.

The unique approach of police in Ipswich and Suffolk to prostitution could have prevented widespread child grooming in the county similar to that which took place in Rochdale and Oxford. That was the assessment of a former senior police officer at a conference which looked at the success of Suffolk Constabulary’s strategy for dealing with prostitution.

Alan Caton OBE, who was the police lead for the strategy when it began, said that its emphasis on prevention, particularly among young people, could have stopped the development of organised child grooming rings.

“Going back to 2006 when we wrote prevention into the strategy, it was long before some of these cases,” he said. So we were actually targeting and identifying vulnerable young people back in 2006 whereas in the last three or four years you’ve had really significant cases across the country.”

The Ipswich and Suffolk Joint Agency Strategy was implemented in the wake of the murder of five prostitutes in Ipswich in 2006. It focused on clamping down on kerb-crawlers while the Make A Change multi-agency team offers women routes out of the trade and tries to prevent young vulnerable girls from becoming involved.

The Make A Change team will now be placed within Suffolk County Council’s Children and Young People’s Services to focus even more on prevention.
