Welcome

Welcome to the Prostitution Diversion Initiative first implemented by the Dallas Police Department in 2007. Instead of viewing prostitutes as criminals the Dallas Police Department would approach them as victims, bring resources from a large cross section of organizations into the streets where the prostitutes work.

This web site provides general information about the program on the About Us Page, provides helpful and illustrative articles on the Articles Page, and on the Social Services page, there is a link to a guide on Social Services and programs for you.

Our web site also provides information on the Dallas S.T.O.P. (Solicitors, Traffickers, and Offenders of Prostitution) Program Education (formerly known as the D.O.P.E School) and the ability to register for upcoming S.T.O.P. classes.
