Around New Haven: Lewis’ war against prostitution persists

With a new round of anti-prostitution stings, incoming New Haven Police Department Chief James Lewis has quickly established his campaign against prostitution as one of the department’s main objectives. Police arrested nine more women charged with prostitution in Fair Haven and Dwight/Kensington neighborhoods Tuesday night as part of Lewis’ new plan. Four weeks in, the NHPD has arrested and charged eight prostitutes and 22 “johns” in undercover stings conducted by the NHPD’s Gun and Violence Unit. City Hall spokeswoman Jessica Mayorga said the stings will continue in upcoming months.
