Increased Prostitution Enforcement
Throughout 2017, the East Lampeter Township Police Department has performed multiple prostitution investigations at hotels along Lincoln Highway East. These investigations have resulted in the arrests of approx. 11 suspects for Prostitution, 11 suspects for Patronizing Prostitutes and 2 suspects for Involuntary Servitude. Chief John Bowman advises that these investigations are part of a continuing increase of enforcement against these activities and would like to remind people that, should they choose to engage in this conduct in East Lampeter Township or Upper Leacock Township, they very well may be meeting some of our officers.
