Prostitution / human trafficking operation yield 27 arrests in Amarillo


On August 10-12, 2021, the Amarillo Police Department Special Operations Division Narcotics Unit worked a human trafficking/solicitation operation. This operation resulted in the arrest of 27 persons for various charges relating to prostitution. 

Some of these subjects also had additional unrelated charges. Some investigations from this operation are still on-going and more arrests are expected.

Agents interview all arrestees of prostitution to identify human trafficking victims. Agents ask the arrestees about others who are being trafficked, and any knowledge of underage victims. The Amarillo Police Department recognizes that human trafficking is a very real problem in Amarillo. The victims in these cases deserve to be treated like human beings and not property. 

Effective September 1, 2021, the criminal penalty for solicitation of prostitution, penal code 43.021 (new statute), first time offense, will be a state jail felony.  This increases the penalty from a Class B misdemeanor for the subject who offers or agrees to pay a fee to another person for the
purpose of engaging in sexual conduct with that person or another.
