Are police officers allowed to lie to you? Yes the Supreme Court has ruled that police officers can lie to the American people. Police officers are trained at lying, twisting words and being manipulative. Police officers and other law enforcement agents are very skilled at getting information from people. So don’t try to “out smart” a police officer and don’t try being a “smooth talker” because you will lose! If you can keep your mouth shut, you just might come out ahead more than you expected.

Pimps and ‘Johns’ beware:

By Brenda Gazzar, Los Angeles Daily News

A new human trafficking task force in the Valley has arrested several pimps and dozens of “Johns” in sting operations in the last two weeks, according to police.

The LAPD Operation-Valley Bureau Human Trafficking Task Force was created to address the “massive influx of human trafficking cases” that have long plagued the busy corridors of Sepulveda and Lankershim boulevards, said Lt. Marc Evans, vice coordinator for the Operations-Valley Bureau and the officer in charge of the task force.

“We have a large influx of hard-core gang members that are buying and selling girls on the streets in the form of prostitution,” Evans said.

Besides Evans, the 12-member task force — the first of its kind in the Valley — includes five undercover officers, four motorcycle officers, a police sergeant and a detective, he said. In the last 15 days, the task force has arrested four pimps or human traffickers, 41 “Johns” or clients, and issued 155 traffic citations and impounded 10 vehicles, he said. Evans could not say how many prostitutes had been arrested, he said.

“John School” in the Valley educates offenders on the crime and perils of sex trafficking.

In the past in the Valley, LAPD had vice units assigned to geographic divisions that would try to handle these often complex and challenging cases on their own, he said.

“By centralizing and having a task force that works out of the Valley Bureau, it allows us to help take those cases that might be difficult to handle from other vice units,” Evans said.

LAPD has been working with council members and a team from Cal State Northridge, which is studying how things like street lighting, tree trimming and no parking signs can reduce prostitution-related crimes in the Valley, to put together a comprehensive plan to combat prostitution, he said. Instead of just arresting these women over and over again, the city has been placing more emphasis on the pimps and patrons while connecting women with programs that will help them to get out of that lifestyle, he said.

In 2013, 1,077 prostitution victims were arrested by Los Angeles Police Department officers in the San Fernando Valley while 63 others were arrested for pimping, pandering or supervising prostitution, police have said. LAPD was unable to provide more recent statistics Tuesday.

Los Angeles City Councilwoman Nury Martinez, whose district includes the communities of Van Nuys, Sun Valley and Panorama City, said she has seen girls as young as 13 years old trafficked in her district. A 16-year-old girl was rescued from prostitution about two weeks ago, she said.

“There’s not a 16-year-old girl that I’ve ever met that wants to be out on Vanowen and Sepulveda just for fun,” she said. “She’s either being threatened or beaten to be out there.”

Monica Alexenko, a sales and marketing consultant who lives off Sepulveda Boulevard in Van Nuys, attended a Kester Ridge Community Watch meeting last month that was attended by some 60 people — nearly half of whom mentioned their concerns about prostitution, she said.

“We feel for the lives of these people and all, but a lot of people were saying these activities go on during the daytime and their children are out in the front yard playing,” she said.

A community meeting about the new task force will be held at 6 p.m. Thursday on the second floor of the Van Nuys City Hall, 14410 Sylvan St.
