“Derby sex worker numbers cut to 30, say police” Derby Telegraph Article [ 8 August 2015 ]
Police say in 2011 an estimated 80 sex workers operated in the Normanton and Pear Tree areas. Now, thanks to a dedicated operation, a partnership working with a city-based women's charity and the help of the local population, that number is down to about 30.
PC Andy Hardy, who heads Operation Scarlett which targets street workers and people who pay for sex, said: "I would estimate we now have about 30 on-street sex workers, although they don't all work at once. It is very transient, with some women only working sporadically when they need to.
"As many as 80 were active on the streets four years ago, with numbers gradually decreasing as the police operation has taken a long-term and sustainable approach."
