Telford and Wrekin Council have written to the home secretary Amber Rudd asking for support in tackling the sexual exploitation of children in the town.
Home office figures show the town has the highest rate of recorded child sex crimes in the country.
The letter, which was also signed by the local police and crime commissioner, comes after Telford MP Lucy Allen spoke of her concern about the problem to Theresa May during PMQs in the House of Commons last week.
