Thirty male suspects have been arrested and charged with prostitution as part of a joint operation between the Tarrant County Sheriff’s Office and Arlington Police Department Vice Unit.

The sting, which focuses on people soliciting sex, is part of the National Johns Suppression Initiative, according to Tarrant County Sheriff’s Office spokesman David McClelland.

The initiative is aimed at curtailing the demand aspect of human sex-trafficking, the Sheriff’s Department said in a news release.
