The City of Flint Police Department has announced that it will begin posting the names and arrest photos of arraigned prostitution suspects on their Facebook page. According to a news release from the City of Flint, the department has the option of sharing the information since arrest records are public. In a statement, Flint Police Chief James Tolbert said the effort is meant to deter would-be offenders from engaging in prostitution activity. "When we look at ways to curb this type of activity, being a visible presence and simply making the arrests isn't enough of a deterrent, " said Tolbert. "What we believe will be effective is the notification to the public which may have repercussions for offenders who are engaged in a crime that is secretive by nature." Citizens can expect to see regular postings of the names and pictures of those arrested this week at www.facebook.com/flintpolicedept.
