M. Shively, et al. — March 7, 2008

The First Offender Prostitution Program (FOPP) is designed to reduce the demand for commercial sex/human trafficking in San Francisco by educating men arrested for soliciting prostitutes (“johns”) about the negative consequences of prostitution. Eligible arrestees have the choice of paying a fee and attending a one-day class (“john school”), or being prosecuted. Findings include FOPP: (1) Has been effective in substantially reducing recidivism among men arrested for soliciting prostituted women; (2) Is cost-effective; and (3) Is transferable, having been successfully replicated in other locations.
