                2 DISC is an investigative tool specific to prostitution and focuses on groups such as pimps, clients of prostitutes, and sexually exploited youth. The database is used by 40 police jurisdictions throughout North America and information in the data base is shared with other police agencies so that sex trade consumers may be tracked in other jurisdictions. For sex trade consumers to be entered in the database, there must be at least reasonable grounds that there was an intent to commit an offense under Sec. 213 or 212(4) (prostitution of a person under eighteen).
