IF these cam have been in place for as long as they say they have, why hasn't Hemet done more about chasing these prostitutes out of here?

Maybe some one is collecting some money to keep hush hush

So they just move to another street to work.
Another genius move to waste tax payers money.

Just do your job and patrol more often.

Hemet can't afford "armchair patrol".

Why do you think these prostitutes walk up and down Florida with no worry in the world? Because the cops never stop to question them. The only time you hear about cops doing something about the problem is when they do a crack down (but only that day) The next day, and the day after, and the day after.....They just pass by these prostitutes and do nothing. Go to Rubio's for example, and notice the prostitutes outside, and when a cop passes by he will not even look at her direction. What a Joke!! These cops must not live in Hemet!! Otherwise they would try and clean up this community by removing these pimps and prostitutes off the street.

Are you familiar with the penalty for prostitution?

Once they are arrested they get a citation and are released. The penalty is more for running a stop sign. The cops have made numerous arrests and most of the hookers have warrants but because the county jail won't accept them their is no consequences. You know what would make them leave? If the people in Hemet stopped paying for them. It's a community problem and you can't get rid of hookers unless people refuse to pay them. So blame who you want but the real blame lies with the people who live in Hemet who are paying for sex.

Seriously, folks, the absolutely DISGUSTING prostitution going on daily on Florida Avenue in Hemet MUST STOP! We the people must DEMAND that those charged with enforcing the law do their sworn duty! As it stands the present nauseating situation in Hemet, with the most hideous-looking ghetto streetwalkers brazenly plying their trade in full view of every man, woman and child who passes by, is an utter DISGRACE.

Nicca Pleeeese!! The cops don't do jack sh>t. If they kept bothering these losers and also kept passing out jay walking tickets this crap would stop. The problem is they know the cops only do it one day and don't bother to do it the next (no consistency). And trust me If Temecula left the hookers alone in their city they would still have plenty of johns soliciting the prostitutes. So it's not about "stop paying hookers" and the will go, NO!! because, it doesn't matter what city (rich or poor) it they (cops) allow the hookers to walk the streets, then believe me there will always be johns!!

Yep, bust them. They get out and go back on the street, bust them again, they get out and go back on the street, bust them again.
Make it unproductive to conduct buisness in this town. The plus side is Hemet get's the revenue equivalent to running a stop sign.

(This information is from 10 years ago, so it has gone up since)

A red light infraction which cost $103 in 1993 and $340 in 2003 is now $490 for California drivers, while rolling through a stop sign will cost $238, nearly double the $130

That's not pocket change.
So, if the Hemet police dept's excuse for not continually busting these hookers is that the infraction is only the cost of failure to stop at a stop sign, than that is a poor excuse.

Or turn the other way when I roll thru the stop sign from now on if it's not worth stopping me for.
I bet that won't happen.

LMAO. Temecula has more prostitution than any other city around. It's just in the message parlors that are in every strip mall and business complex in Temecula.
