Transcript of Operation Scarlet multi-agency

Operation Scarlet 'Multi-Agency'
Enforcement of the law

Enforcement of the law alone will only displace the issue.

Displacement is NOT considered a
positive outcome.

Multi-Agency approach
Working pro-actively with multi-agency partners will help to understand the issues surrounding prostitution, reduce harm and increase public confidence and increase the quality of service to all communities affected by the issues of prostitution.
Supervising an ESO
Receive referral from police with court date
Attend court and meet SW
Needs assessment at court or appt made
Care plan drawn up
Mutually achievable goals
(referral subs misuse/sexual health/housing)

Minimum Requirements
Although legal requirement is for 3 appts within a 6 month period, theoretically this could be achieved within a week. Spread required appts over 6 month period, with update to police at 3 month stage. There will be other appts with partner agencies within the 6 month period.
National 'Ugly Mug' Scheme
The aim of the 'Ugly Mug' scheme is to improve the safety of sex workers and reduce crimes committed against them by alerting them to dangerous individuals operating in their area, to record and monitor crimes
against sex workers, and to allow
third party reporting.
