Teri Bennyworth and Dino Caldera take a quick, collective breath as they creep into the adult bookstore through a grimy back-alley entrance.
They are looking to catch a man with his pants down. Quite literally. Nodding to the brooding worker behind the counter, a replacement for the regular clerk who has taken time off for a sex-change operation, they tiptoe past private video-viewing booths, peering around corners, hearing the exaggerated moans from X-rated movies that cast a staccato glow on the dingy walls. Then, in a flurry of brandished badges, the undercover LAPD officers rush into a booth and arrest a man sprawled naked in a folding chair before a tiny TV screen.
He always wanted me to be a doctor. Night after neon night, they come looking to buy sex: wide-eyed tourists, priests, lawyers, rabbis and accountants--all risking a sobering clash with cops like Bennyworth and Caldera.
Nearly three-dozen Los Angeles Police Department vice officers are assigned to the front lines of this Hollywood prostitution war. The hours are long and ever-changing. The lure of the bribe--everything from hard cash to sexual favors--comes with nearly every arrest.
But however distasteful the assignment, Bennyworth and Caldera say, Hollywood vice is the place to be. Believe me, business is good in Hollywood vice. Really, really good. Last year, the squad made 2, arrests, including 1, for prostitution. The second-place vice unit registered less than prostitution arrests. Last June, Bennyworth and Caldera staked a tiny piece of entertainment history when they nabbed actor Hugh Grant in a compromising position with a prostitute.
