Sex in our city: Garda operation targetting prostitution in Waterford
Gardai have launched a clampdown on prostitution in Waterford.
The Garda Press Office confirmed officers stopped and questioned 23 people suspected of paying for sex in eight divisions last week, including Waterford.
The suspects were questioned as part of Operation Quest, which took place over two days earlier this week.
The operation, which is aimed at protecting victims of human trafficking, was focused on Waterford, Cork, Dublin, Mayo, Sligo and Louth.
Gardai have warned more stop and search days will be carried out throughout 2020.
