Nottingham Police Prostitution Call.

6 posts in this topic

This is part of a worrying trend of public servants making political statements about the law. Its not their job. It is their job to enforce the law as laid down by parliament. They can vote to change the law by voting at a general election same as the rest of us. Otherwise they should stfu.

Your average plod doesnt even know half of the  most basic laws so they really have no place calling for a change in them. Eg them turning up with the TV licencing people and thinking they are allowed to act as personal security to force them into your home. Nope...

Sgt Plod also claimed: "claimed such a law change would help reduce the demand for trafficked women and children". This is often quoted by those who want to make the purchase of sexual services illegal. However, there is no evidence, from Sweden or anywhere else, to support this axiom. 

 

The POW Chief Executive thinks:

 

"There are concerns there are safety implications with this. If somebody is working from the street and they see somebody they don't like the look of, they get the chance to walk away. But if they are just opening the door to somebody, that risk assessment procedure is gone."

 

I would like to hear the views of the WGs on here about this. It seems to me that this woman is talking Bo***ks and allowing small groups of women to work together would be much safer than either street work or a girl working alone in a flat. But then, I am not an 'expert' being interviewed by BBC so what would I know?

They're bright these Nottingham plods. Stopping in street prostitution has meant more off street prostitution.

 

And then But there is no equivalent legislation for off-street work. If somebody goes into a brothel to purchase sex, it is possible he isn't committing any offence at all.

"That's wrong and we have to be able to do something about it." Well that's wrong as well. Running a brothel is illegal so the police have plenty of powers to close them down. And of course a brothel provides safety in numbers.

Oddly they don't say anything about independents.

It seems to have been that making street prostitution illegal for both parties was intended to drive prostitution off the streets. Not to make it illegal. Residents did not want to see it and for their children to see it. Let alone find used condoms all over the place. Also non prostitute women were fed up with being accosted by those seeking sex.

Clearly shows that there is plenty of scope for cutting police budgets.
