HPD Publishes Booking Photos of 54 People Arrested in August on Prostitution Charges

The Police Department wants to raise public awareness

The Houston Police Department (HPD) has published on its Flickr page the booking photos of the 54 people who were arrested during the month of August on prostitution charges.

Some of the persons were arrested and charged for compelling prostitution –known as pimps– and others for solicitation of prostitution –known as johns–.

An HPD spokesperson said the department published the booking photos to make the public more aware of this crime.

“We hope by publishing these suspects’ photos we will raise awareness of the issue that is human trafficking and put the community on notice that we will no longer tolerate these crimes in our neighborhoods,” said HPD Vice Division Captain James Dale.

The department also promoted the Flickr post on its Twitter feed.
