Due to the uptick of prostitution activity in the downtown area, the Vallejo Police Department's Crime Reduction Team CRT conducted several operations to combat this activity. These multiple operations lasted from January through the middle of February CRT detectives also monitored social media and escort sites for potential human trafficking violations occurring in the City of Vallejo.

Any cases of international kidnapping for sex trafficking or forced labor are generally cases that are handled at the federal level and not typically something the VPD would be involved in, Tonn said.

Rarely, Tonn emphasized, are minors participating as prostitutes, at least in California with tougher laws. It is nothing more than guys making money off these girls.
