On the beat with the prostitution task force

Postby admin » 27 Feb 2010, 16:20

LAST year was a good year on the beat – because no one died.
That's according to officers of the On-Street Prostitution Task Force.
Death from drug overdoses and health problems from spending night after night on street corners, as well as murder, is a risk for the women who sell sex in the city's vice area.
Most days and nights, the task force patrols Nottingham's main red light district of Forest Road, from Mapperley Park to Radford, and part of St Ann's. While the number of on-street prostitutes has decreased dramatically in the last five years, officers recognise many of the faces and their stories.
"The official figures are that 95% of on-street prostitutes are addicted to class A drugs, but I don't know one who isn't on drugs," said task force community protection officer Richard Lee.

Midlands ban for girl caught in Nottingham

Postby admin » 30 Aug 2010, 13:12

A 33-YEAR-OLD woman has been banned from loitering for prostitution in the Midlands for two years after being caught in Nottingham. Emma Midgley, of no fixed address, has been served with an anti-social behaviour order after being caught by police in Mapperley Road, Nottingham, on July 6.

Nottingham Magistrates' Court imposed her Asbo until August 24, 2012. The order prevents her from entering the "Nottingham Vice Area" between 5.30pm and 5.30am daily, and from loitering or soliciting for the purposes of prostitution anywhere in Notts, Derbyshire, Lincolnshire, Leicestershire and Northamptonshire.

Richard Antcliff, neighbourhood enforcement officer for Notts Police community protection team, said: "In this instance, we had no choice but to apply to the courts for an Asbo stopping Ms Midgley from continuing this behaviour, which negatively affects local residents and their families. We will continue to use our tools and powers as effectively as possible to protect our local communities."

Five year ASBO ban from city vice area

Postby admin » 02 Sep 2010, 19:45

A 27-YEAR-OLD woman has been given a five year anti social behaviour order banning her from soliciting for prostitution in Nottingham. Angela Hopkins, 27, of Bulwell, was given the ban after Nottingham Magistrates' Court was told how she had repeatedly been caught loitering for the purposes of prostitution in the city's Arboretum vice area since 2001.

There were 29 reports within the seven months leading up to the court hearing.

Sergeant Neil Radford, of the Nottingham Community Protection On-Street Prostitution Team, said: "I've known Ms Hopkins since the team was formed in 2004. Throughout this time Angela has been offered many opportunities for support by other agencies and drug workers. And for periods of time she has accepted help, however she has repeatedly relapsed and returned to prostitution.

nottingham kerbcrawlers targeted

Postby triple h » 03 Sep 2010, 15:21

Fifteen men have been caught kerb crawling by an undercover policewoman in a two-night operation in Nottingham.

The officer worked with Nottingham's on-street prostitution team over the bank holiday weekend in the city's Arboretum area.

Sgt Neil Radford from Nottinghamshire Police said the men's behaviour was "totally unacceptable".

The on-street prostitution team is made up of police and community protection officers.

"These men all stopped our officer and asked for sex with no knowledge as to why she was there," said Sgt Radford.

"Our officer could have been any local resident walking home along the street.

"This behaviour can be distressing for women and is totally unacceptable."

City kerb crawler gets two-year ASBO

Postby admin » 29 Sep 2010, 20:25

A 21-YEAR-OLD man caught kerb-crawling three times has been served with a two-year antisocial behaviour order. Adrian Kurcz, of Whitechapel Street, Old Basford, was also ordered to pay £200 in fines and costs by Nottingham Magistrates' Court.

On each occasion he was caught by undercover police officers from the Notts force's On-Street Prostitution Team. Kurcz was first caught on June 27, 2008, when he tried to solicit a woman for prostitution in Balmoral Road, in the Arboretum area. Kurcz was arrested and interviewed with a Polish interpreter. He received a police caution after admitting kerb-crawling.

He was next caught on February 14 this year, when he tried to solicit another woman in Vickers Street, off Mapperley Road. On this particular occasion Kurcz had taken a taxi to the area and the taxi driver was also arrested.

Finally, in August this year, Kurcz was caught again in Balmoral Road, when he approached a woman police officer on foot. He tried to beckon her into The Forest recreation ground, asking her for sex for £20.

Prostitutes in street fight

Postby admin » 19 Jun 2011, 09:53

TWO PROSTITUTES got into a fight then one assaulted a police officer. April Morley was also carrying a screwdriver, which she said was for her protection, a court heard.

Officers were called to Mapperley Road, Mapperley Park, on June 5, after two women were seen fighting. The other woman claimed she was assaulted by Morley, but wouldn't make a statement.

Morley was found down the road and appeared to be drunk. She swore, shouted and kicked at the officers, and spat at one of them, with the spittle landing in the officer's hair.

Police clamp down on Nottingham kerb-crawlers

Postby Preacher » 22 Jul 2011, 19:47

THE number of prostitutes working the streets of Nottingham has fallen by nearly 75 per cent in the last five years, according to new official figures. There were 57 women working on city streets up last month, compared to 80 last year and 217 at the same stage of 2006.

Police and senior city council officials say the latest figures, collated by the Nottingham Crime and Drugs Partnership, reflect the work of Notts Police, the city council's on-street prostitution task force and charity organisations such as Prostitute Outreach Workers (POW) – supported by local residents' groups and businesses – in reducing kerb crawling and helping prostitutes find new lives.

Formed in 2004, the on-street prostitution task force is funded jointly by the city council and Notts Police. Since its launch, it has dealt with 350 different women involved in street prostitution and has made more than 1,000 arrests or cautions for prostitution or soliciting. More than 1,000 men have been caught and charged with buying sex on the streets.

She said: "It's our experience that there are fewer women working as on-street prostitutes. There are some great success stories of multi-agency work where women are no longer working [as prostitutes] and are doing really well. "There are some women that have moved out of Nottingham who are possibly still involved in street work. There are also women who are not on the street but are still working in other places. Trying to reach and support those women is something we are starting to develop."

Nottingham: Gates installed to rid alley of vice

Postby admin » 15 Dec 2011, 18:23

AN alleyway where prostitutes were seen performing sex acts has been gated off. Police and council staff took action after receiving complaints from people living near the alleyway off Addison Street in the city.

Police said some residents even complained that their young children had seen the prostitutes from their bedroom windows and had seen used needles dumped in their gardens.

Community protection officer Katey Morley, of the city's on-street prostitution team, said: "The area was continually used by prostitutes and their punters for a number of years and was often left in a disgusting state with empty alcohol cans, needles and used condoms left in full view of neighbouring properties. Prostitutes were regularly found performing sex acts in the alleyway by police officers and PCSOs."

Doesn't that just move them elsewhere?
