Last night in response to community complaints of prostitution in the lower Blue Hill Avenue area (100-400 block of Blue Hill Ave.), detectives and officers from District B-2 (Roxbury) engaged in an undercover operation to arrest and thus deter individuals who frequent the area for the purpose of buying sexual services. As part of this operation, officers utilized a plain clothes female officer who posed as a prostitute.
