Tuesday, Oct. 13, 2009 | The oldest profession probably will never go away, but as stated by law enforcement representatives it can be controlled if you use the right methods. High visibility policing was mentioned as the most effective method. With the SDPD down 250 Officers and a hiring freeze in place one has to wonder where the officers conducting these high visibility patrols are going to come from. In addition, most arrests are made by undercover vice detectives. With the investigational ranks of the SDPD being depleted to supplement the dwindling patrol divisions it is only logical the ability to arrest will be lessened. With the limited resources the SDPD has to use, one has to believe prostitution issues likely are going to get worse, not better.
