Back in 2016, she was arrested by the Tokyo police while filming the documentary Young Sex for Sale in Japan, which is based on the child sexual exploitation in Japan. During that time she also investigated about the missing girls of Canada and the growing world of Britain's digital drug dealers.
British-born journalist Stacey was quite interested in third world labor laws since she started her career in the journalism world which led her to BBC Three where she got her own show, Stacey Dooley Investigates, in 2009. That year, BBC Three released three documentaries including two parts of Kids on Sale, a documentary related to child trafficking.
After a year, in 2010, Dooley interviewed the child soldiers in Congo and also investigated sex trafficking and underage sex slavery in Cambodia. She visited Greece, Ireland, and Japan to explore the effects of the global financial crisis on young people in those countries and presented in 2012 documentary.

In 2016, Stacey went to Iraq to research about and prepare a documentary on the condition of women and children as she interviewed the Yazidi women who were fighting against the Isis during that time and released the documentary On the Frontline: Girls, Guns, and Isis.
