    Default Police Could Stop Raiding Suspected Brothels in England and Wales.

    Police Could Stop Raids On Suspected Brothels in England and Wales.
    [Article on Skynews]

    Rather a mixed article, on the one hand you have,
    “A "managed area" in Leeds introduced in 2014 has effectively decriminalised prostitution in Holbeck - an industrial area on the outskirts of the city centre - between 7pm and 7am, leaving sex workers and clients free to conduct transactions without facing arrest or questioning by police.”

    And,
    “There are concerns that changes to the approach to policing prostitution is decriminalising the sex trade without parliamentary consent.
    "We absolutely need a new approach to prostitution. But what it will take is for parliament to pass a new law. because at the moment our law sends really mixed messages," said Kat Banyard, from campaign group End Demand. "The job of police is not to manage prostitution, it's to end it."


    And of course the usual associating of sex work with exploitation and criminality,
    "There is no perfect solution to dealing with sex work and sexual exploitation but this strategy sets out an approach that considers risk, threat and harm to all and aims to tackle both neighbourhood nuisance and the exploitation of sex workers by organised criminals and gangs."

    Maybe worth a read.
