Quote Six people were arrested on prostitution charges Thursday at a Naperville apartment building, police said. Five women and one man were taken into custody in the 1300 block of Crab Apple Court following an investigation into online posts offering sexual services conducted by the Naperville Police...

toyomotor,
It's very common on craigslist and other community bulletin boards. Also selling drugs and stolen goods.
They just used urban phrases that are not familiar to everyone. In fact some go so far as to actually request the items they would like stolen, size , color etc. 
No shame but then not so different from Lobbyists and congressmen.

But, read the bold print. Did you miss the point?

Hardly.
Fetish is the word. All day long, people asking to be 'showered', diapered, spanked, poked and prodded. Not shy about it at all.

"an investigation... conducted by the Naperville Police Department."  It is a complex sentence and you got the wrong subject.  Or maybe that was an intentional "mistake."

I would expect knowledgable people around the world to know better than that....

I'm hoping that this comment was intended as a joke, as was the OP.

Franky hit the nail on the head, it was a complex sentence and I deliberately brought the wrong subject to the fore to highlight what I considered a bit of a joke-but also sloppy sentence structure by a journalist.
