59. CONTROL OF PROSTITUTION.
d. Control of prostitution. (Superseded.) (1) The
repression of prostitution is an established policy of
the War Department. (See AR 600-900.) This
policy applies to all oversea commands as well as
those within the continental United States.
(2) In United States and possessions. In the
United States, the civil authorities have complete
control over the repression of prostitution. Military
police have no power to arrest prostitutes or to close
houses of prostitution. The policy of repression is
accomplished through the cooperation of civilian law
enforcement agencies and civilian health organiza-
tions. Where local authorities fail to cooperate in
removing unsatisfactory conditions, the local com-
mander will recommend to higher authority that af-
fected areas be placed off-limits to members of the
Armed Forces, and may take the necessary prelimni-
nary steps to the invoking of the May Act by the
Secretary of War. (See Public Law No. 163, 11 July
