really saw a with a john's tend to drive up and down the street. >> the enter the bloc generally on the 18th and cap. >> and they make their way south towards 22nd supervisor. ronen and others got the idea to put up barricades in that neighborhood. the idea here is to disrupt their ability to >> move up and down the corridor. so i be barricades placed on the south end of each block accessible from the north for the neighbors. lerma says the assistant police chief is also putting a motorcycle unit in that area on fridays and saturdays to issue citations district attorney brooke jenkins says she's also visited cap street at night to better understand how her office can address prostitution. >> and human trafficking concerns. in a statement she said in part currently citations for solicitation are referred to our neighborhood courts for adjudication. johns referred to neighborhood court are expected to abide by the
agreements they make with community members, including going to john school and pledging to not repeat their behavior. 14 john's have been referred to neighborhood court. so what does john school, one of the key messages is trying to do and put the building, trying to get them to understand that what they're doing is is harmful. doctor michael shipley works for the national center for exploitation. >> this nonprofit did a 3 year study commissioned by the department of justice to observe a program in san francisco and it found it to be very successful in the 10 years. leading up to this program, starting. the real fence rate for men in the city got arrested was 8.8%. >> and it really fell by nearly half the exact year. the program started and it never rebound. as doctor shipley says there are over 100 programs that are modeled after the one in san francisco.
