In many settings, law enforcement officers themselves are the perpetrators, making instability and uncertainty the norm for sex workers trying to earn a living. Abusive law enforcement officers, accompanied by violence, extortion, sexual abuse, rape and mandatory testing for HIV and sexually transmitted infections, exacerbate the vulnerability of sex workers. For example, a survey of female sex workers in the Ghana found that rape during sex work was reported by two thirds of respondents and sexual coercion by police was reported by more than one third .
