    Q331: There are prostitutes/kerb crawlers always hanging around outside, what can the police do?

    Both the prostitutes and the kerb-crawlers are committing criminal offences by carrying out these actions. You need to inform the police, obtaining as much information as you can about the people involved, the names of those believed to be soliciting and the vehicle registration numbers of any suspected kerb-crawlers. However, do not put yourself at risk. If in doubt contact your nearest police station.

    Warning letters, injunctions and prosecution are some of the tactics used by police and other agencies in an attempt to combat this problem.
