MILWAUKEE (WITI) -- Police are working to crack down on prostitution in the City of Milwaukee, using an undercover sting operation to arrest prostitutes and then men who use them.

The department's Anti-Prostitution Unit is made up of just two officers. They say prostitution is a city-wide and complex problem.

On Thursday, September 12th, FOX6's Ben Handelman was invited to ride along with the officers as they worked undercover to shut down the sex trade on Milwaukee's south side.
