The Clarksville Police Department racked up 11 arrests after what they are calling a “two-day prostitution demand reduction operation.” 

Clarksville police spokesman Jim Knoll said the department’s “Special Operations Unit” posted an ad online targeting people who provide or solicit sexual services for money. The ad was posted and the people who answered negotiated prices and agreed to meet an undercover officer at a specific location. 

The police department said prostitution is linked to other crimes like robbery, assault, drugs, and human trafficking.
