Prostitution

Leith Links Community Council are aware of community concerns in relation to street prostitution with our area.

This is a matter which we have discussed previously at great length and have raised with Police Scotland and City of Edinburgh Councillors.

 

Support

If any of the woman require support or assistance to move on from street prostitution they can get in touch with Streetwork, their contact details are on their website.  There are a number of support agencies offering a variety of support to provide advice & support, Streetwork can act as a point of information for such agencies & services.

 

Enforcement

Where a crime, or a crime is suspected of being committed residents are encouraged to report the matter to Police Scotland, at the time. This allows the Police to keep track of any incidents and also provides the best opportunity for them to investigate and resolve.
