POLK COUNTY, Fla. — Polk County deputies arrested the deputy police chief of a Georgia police department last week after he was accused of soliciting a prostitute.
Deputies said Jason DiPrima, of Kingston, Georgia, responded to an online escort advertisement and started messaging an undercover detective.
They said DiPrima, who is the deputy chief of police administration for the Cartersville Police Department, was in Orlando for an American Polygraph Association seminar/workshop.
Investigators said DiPrima initially agreed to pay the undercover detective $120 for a half-hour, but when he arrived, he gave the undercover detective $180 and a multi-pack of White Claw Hard Seltzer.
DiPrima was arrested and transported to the Polk County Jail where he was released after paying a $500 bond.
Deputies said his department was notified of his arrest.
Deputies said DiPrima’s arrest was a part of a weeklong human trafficking undercover enforcement operation conducted by the Polk County Sheriff’s Office and other law enforcement agencies.
