HPD looks to crack down on prostitution in SE Houston

The Houston Police Department wants to reduce the demand for prostitution, so they went after the customers.

24 men were arrested in an operation that targeted men looking to hire prostitutes. 

One woman was also arrested for prostitution in the campaign, that went in three phases over a month in the 8300 block of the Gulf Freeway.

It is a place filled with spas and xxx video shops, but there are other businesses, likely a family restaurant, where employees say they have seen enough.

Some in the area say the police department needs to keep the heat on the johns and the prostitutes.
