In this case it isabout fighting the war on prostitution. It focuses on St. Petersburg which isfinding new ways to eliminate prostitution by sending out Dear John letters and“mapping” an area where they deny the prostitutes access to where theypreviously worked.

The strategic oriented police are targeting the prostitution problemwhich many feel is a waste of time and resources. With targeting prostitutionby sending out Dear John letters letting offenders and family members know theconsequences if they get caught.

Thesecond cop in action is the Kansas City gun experiment. In this experimentKansas City focused on seizing illegally carried fire arms.
