WEST VALLEY CITY — Responding to recent complaints of lewd acts being committed along the Jordan Parkway Trail in West Valley, police conducted a day of "directed enforcement" Sunday.

The result: 15 men arrested for investigation of lewdness.

Police had heavy patrols of the parkway between 3100 South and 3500 South on Sunday. Those arrested were participating or attempting to participate in sexual acts in the bushes just off the main trail, said West Valley Assistant Police Chief Craig Black.

Black said the problem usually spikes for awhile and then calms down.

"If it becomes a problem again, we'll go down there on an as-needed basis," he said.
