3Getting Started Written proposal Presented up the Chain of Command Approved in August 2000First John School was in June 2002
4John School GoalsThe goal of the Waco Police Department John School is to educate individuals of the dangers that are present while soliciting and engaging in sexual conduct with prostitutes. Not only is there the danger of contracting STD/HIV, but prostitution also stems to other crimes such as theft, robbery, and forgery. In addition, the prostitutes also become the victims of crimes such as assault, robbery, sexual assault, and even murder. With the attendance of the John School, the ultimate goal is to educate the John of the hazards of prostitution and refrain from frequenting the locations where prostitutes conjure, thus diminishing the demand and reducing the supply.
