DAYTON — The City of Dayton announced a new initiative Friday aimed at combating prostitution.
Called Buyer’s Remorse, the campaign will “modernize” the city’s approach to prostitution, according to a press release.
It will make the information of anyone that comes to Dayton to pay for sex “very” public, Mayor Nan Whaley said during a press conference Friday.
Social media ads that are geo-targeted to the offenders’ locations will list the names of people convicted of prostitution-related crimes, Whaley explained.
Their names and addresses will added to a map on www.buyersremorsecampaign.com, according to the press release.
The names and addresses of people convicted of selling sex will not be published though.
Whaley said that prostitution is not a victimless crime and added that many women involved in prostitution end up in the sex trade.
