Nearly 40 kerb crawlers have been caught on Teesside in six months. The majority of the and were local but one had travelled in a brothel van from Tyneside, Cleveland Police said. Plain-clothes police officers caught eight men in the first five days of a new operation targeting parts of Middlesbrough middlesbrough Stockton. The force said it wanted to tackle anti-social behaviour caused by prostitution prostitution, and target men exploiting vulnerable sex workers. Twenty-eight men have been sent on a one day course to "address their behaviour", a spokesperson said. The others have been sent to court or are still to be dealt with by police.
This may also be combined with earlier hours of working in order to tap into a broader market of clients; earlier working in daytime hours can create more conflict with residents. Initiatives which treat sex.
Increased competition for clients between sex workers means prices are depressed. But, unless meaningful steps to address the structures that drive people into prostitution are simultaneously taken, legal and other measures aimed at preventing prostitute use will do little to improve the lot of those who are exploited by prostitute users. Action against buyers of sex may come in the form of action against Kerb crawling.
This policing technique has been used in many areas if the UK and France, but whilst feminists welcome the shifting of the emphasis from the supply to the demand, one study argues that the effect of reducing the client base has severe negative effects on sex workers. Despite this strong criticism, attacking kerb crawlers is a policy which is very much alive — in Aprilpolice in Middlesbrough applied to Magistrates to be able to confiscate the vehicles used by buyers in an effort to reduce on-street prostitution.

There is likely to be a shift to later hours of working, to avoid police and to make contact with clients.
