County 911 chief's wife snared in prostitution sting

What is going on with people who work for 911 emergency call centers these days?

A couple of weeks ago, we learned that 911 dispatchers in Montgomery County held a holiday party where alcohol and sex toys were exchanged during working hours on county property. Photos of dispatchers holding booze and sex toys were posted on the Internet, leading to a county investigation. That led to the firing of a supervisor and unspecified disciplinary action against other county employees.

Now we have the wife of the director of Chester County's Department of Emergency Services arrested for prostitution.

Theresa Atkins, 49, of the 100 block of Woodgate Lane in Paoli, was charged March 19 as part of a prostitution ring operating in Philadelphia, according to the West Chester Daily Local News.

Her husband, Edward J. Atkins, has headed the county's 911 department for about 10 years, the newspaper reported.

Theresa Atkins was one of five women who allegedly worked for different escort services that charged from $200 to $400 per hour for sex, according to the Daily News. All five women charged with prostitution.
