Police claim they are “on the right track” in their efforts to tackle prostitution on Dundee’s streets — after seeing a “drop in activity”. A community meeting was told by two senior officers that proactive operations were having “an impact” in the Maryfield area.

The Tele previously uncovered significant problems with prostitution in Arbroath Road, where residents said the area around their homes had become a “red light zone”.

During an investigation a young woman offered to have sex with one of our reporters in exchange for £40 to fund her drug habit. The reporter was posing as a member of the public at the time.

But Inspector Kerry Lynch and Sergeant Jamie Allen told a Maryfield Locality Planning Partnership meeting that police were having success in controlling the issue.

Insp Lynch said a new strategy aimed at tackling the problem would also be introduced. She said: “The poster campaign will say that Police Scotland will not tolerate people looking for the services of prostitutes — it’s as simple as that. I met Detective Chief Inspector John Wylie recently and we agreed a new policing strategy and how we’re going to deliver it.

“There has been a drop in the activity within the community, as well as the visibility. There’s definitely been an impact. We’re working with other groups to try to improve things, so we’re definitely on the right track.”

Residents in a Dundee area notorious for being a “red light zone” claim the problem of prostitution has not gone away despite an overall decrease in recorded offences in the city.

Figures released by Police Scotland show that there were nine offences reported and the same number detected in 2016/17.

While this was an increase compared to 2016/15, when there was just one offence, it is a significant drop from previous years going back to 2012, when there were 38 offences.

However, residents said they are still seeing prostitution-related activity almost every night.

A leading police chief said the force targets those who “exploit, control, abuse, force or coerce” others into prostitution. Detective Superintendent Stuart Houston, of the national human trafficking unit, said prostitution exists in all communities in Scotland.

He added: “We will continue efforts to identify people who are forced into prostitution. It used to be there would be people coming to an area of a city and picking up prostitutes on the street. These days that is less common. If that initial engagement happens online in someone’s own living room, that is much harder to detect.”

Det Supt Houston also said human trafficking connected to prostitution was often misinterpreted by the public. He said: “There is sometimes a misconception that people trafficked into prostitution are always foreign nationals, but that’s not the case. You can traffic someone from one side of the street to the other and force them into prostitution, and that is still human trafficking.

“In terms of Dundee, you could have someone trafficked from a different part of the city — whether that’s for prostitution, forced labour or some other type of exploitation that is being carried out. Our job is to find out who the people behind that are.

“In terms of prostitution, we have an element of partnership working as well. If the police identify someone involved in prostitution we will look at how they can best be helped and from whom, and find out how they came to be forced into that situation, if that is the case.”
