The NYPD’s Vice Enforcement Division is, in theory, tasked with policing so-called quality-of-life offenses such as consensual sex work, narcotics use, and gambling. But in reality, Vice officers use their badges to exploit, sexually harass, and otherwise terrorize sex workers and their clients. Instead of investing in policing, we must elevate sex workers by investing in peer-led outreach, housing, and supportive services, including legal help and medical and mental health care.
