The results of the study and discussion indicate that prevention of prostitution crime under the guise of fitness place can be done by means of criminal law (penal) and non penal facilities (facilities outside of criminal law). Prevention of criminal acts, especially the crime of prostitution, must be adjusted with the law of development plan which is part of the national development. The process of reforming or establishing a law enforcement is carried out through a formulation / legislation policy, whereas law enforcement and institutional enforcement processes are carried out through the application / judicial appeals and criminal proceedings carried out under the exclusion / administration policy. Constraints in the prevention of criminal prosthesis are due to several factors namely legal factors (law), law enforcement factors, community factors and cultural factors. The legal factors relating to the Penal Code are not directly regulated on the prosecution of prostitution as a form of crime.
