ST. LOUIS, April 16 (UPI) -- In an effort to crack down on “johns" who are soliciting prostitutes in town, the St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department will begin sending a postcard to men who are caught trying to pick up ladies of the night.

The postcard reminds the johns that their “lewd, lascivious and/or suggestive behavior (including but not limited to prostitution, solicitation and prostitution loitering) are a violation of city ordinance and state law” and includes a court date.



The program will debut in the neighborhoods of Carondelet and Holly Hills.
