March 17, 2009
Police officials in Dayton, Ohio, are hoping to create the city's first rehabilitation center for commercial sex workers, following a reported increase in HIV-positive sex workers arrested in 2008, the Dayton Daily News reports. According to the Daily News, 12 sex workers, including two men, arrested last year were HIV-positive, up from "less than a handful" in 2006 and 2007, police said. Lt. Brian Johns said that it is the largest increase he has seen in his 10 years of service.
