    Edit this sentence pls

    Police cracked 392 cases of organizing, forcing, luring, tolerating or accommodating, and introducing women to prostitute in the province at large.

    PS I felt the word "crack" is not a formal usage.

    It's not a slang term-you'll see it used in newspapers, etc. I'd change it to 'prostitution', which is the activity- 'prostitute' is the sex worker.
