    The urban renewal measures implemented by Daegu City in its Dowon-dong red-light district in known as Jagal Madang have proven highly effective.

     

    With the addition of four more CCTVs to the two installed last August, Jagal Madang now has a total of six installed CCTV cameras. Furthermore, the ATMs formerly placed at the entrance to the red-light district have been removed; 47 dim street lights have been replaced with brighter versions; and administrative dispositions have been issued against ten buildings in the area that violated building codes. A city official reported,“It is believed that the number of sex buyers coming to this red-light district has dropped significantly ever since all visitors are recorded on the CCTVs.”

     

    Other relevant organizations are contributing to the city’s efforts. This year, a total of 39 persons were arrested in 17 cases, with some of them being fined and/or registered for investigation.

     

    In December of last year, Daegu City introduced an ordinance providing support for the rehabilitation of prostituted victims with the aim of assisting them with living, accommodation, and vocational training costs.
