What: Operation Zero - To reduce prostitution and kerb crawling in Bolton
Where: Lever St, St Marks St, Nile St, Bridgeman St and its surrounding area including other nearby street where the activities are undertaken.
When: Early evening on most days and especially at the weekend
Update: Routine patrols have identified individuals who have been advised accordingly. Also there is the policy to treat the Street workers as victims in the first instance with the intention of signposting to support networks such as BIDAS, Benefit and housing support in order to reduce the amount of working girls in the area, thereby reducing the overall problem.
