This paper examines how prostitution is slowly invading each nook and corner of Los Angeles and how a reformative solution is needed to give the people caught up in the ring of prostitution a new way of life. It outlines the present scenario in Los Angeles and details the problems and possible solutions. It evaluates how educating the deserted and outcast children on the issue would go a long way in preventing the birth of another generation of prostitutes and how rehabilitation by providing them with new opportunities to make them economically stable is the best method to eradicate prostitution from society.

From the Paper:

"Henry Pegeron, an experienced Los Angeles County Sheriff opines that effective control of the prostitution menace is only possible by a combined effort on the part of the cops and the local community. From his experience Pegeron recounts that invariably the prostitute is associated with other kinds of illegal activities like drug trafficking and selling. Henry also points out that in majority of the cases people are unwilling to get themselves involved in cases against the customers of the prostitutes and hence refrain from giving information to the cops. Unless community policing helps the cops get some concrete evidence of the illegal prostitute activity and their customers it will be of little use in eradicating prostitution."
