LOS ANGELES (AP) — Dust off those resumes, the Los Angeles City Council may soon be looking for a condom cop.

Earlier this year the council appointed a committee to study how a newly minted law requiring the use of condoms on some adult film sets could be enforced.

After several meetings between police, representatives of the porn industry and other committee members, the city’s administrative officer issued a 47-page report Wednesday.

Among its recommendations: contracting with a licensed medical professional who would conduct periodic inspections of film productions to make sure condoms are used.

Other proposals include establishing a fee, the amount to be determined, to pay for those inspections.

The law requiring condoms came after years of lobbying by groups citing the dangers of AIDS and other sexually transmitted diseases.
