Positive policing and sex work

A report, produced by Sonke Gender Justice, has been published documenting the proceedings from a roundtable discussion on policing and sex work as part of the Positive Policing Partnership (PPP) which NACOSA is part of. Chaired by Marlise Richter (from Sonke Gender Justice), the roundtable comprised a panel of five experts from the sex work, law enforcement and civil society sectors.

Through discussing ways of creating more positive relationships between law enforcement and sex workers, the purpose was to contribute to the aims and objectives of the Positive Policing Partnership (PPP) – and through more positive relationships to reduce human rights violations experienced by sex workers as perpetrated by law enforcement.
