A red van with cartoon decal is parked along the side of a road in the Hilltop. Several women gather outside the van, taking turns to approach for items like clothing and some donuts donated by a local bakery. As women receive help, they go and grab their friends nearby and bring them to the van. The woman has been out of jail for about a month. Now, she's is back on Sullivant Avenue working the streets. It's where the highest concentration of soliciting charges are logged in Columbus. More people are being released from jail during the coronavirus pandemic to promote social distancing behind bars.
One local activist says an unintended consequence of that has been an increase in prostitution and sex trafficking in some parts of the city. Esther Flores, a nurse, runs a local nonprofit called 1DivineLine2Health. She's expressing alarm at what she says is an increase in prostitution on the Hookers of Columbus Side.
Flores has been working on renovating an old veterinary clinic into a drop-in center on the West Side. For years, Flores has been in the business of helping women. But because of how many people are being released from jail early during the pandemic, she recently decided to include men in her efforts, as well. But they're actually making fewer arrests, largely because the department has shifted their efforts since COVID took hold.
Knight says PACT is focusing on more long-term investigative work, such as shutting down brothels. We were able to get them services. The unit made seven prostitution arrests in March and none in April. That's a far drop from the 58 arrests logged in January and 48 in February.Girl Goes Buck Wild episode #2 ( Columbus Ohio ) southside
