Surrey Police Assistant Chief Constable Jerry Kirkby says the force agrees with and accepts HMIC conclusions that there are a number of learning points to come out of the Savile case.
"The HMIC review is clear that intelligence sharing between forces was critical to the eventual outcome of allegations made against Savile in his lifetime.
"I welcome their acknowledgement that in 2007 victims were taken seriously by Surrey Police and allegations were recorded correctly, but our investigators were unable to benefit from knowledge of any previous allegations made elsewhere in the country despite conducting national intelligence checks.
"The review concludes that, had Surrey investigators been made aware of these previous reports, our investigation would have been scaled up accordingly. One of the key issues was the decision not to share accounts between victims.
"Whilst the HMIC agree this was initially done correctly in order to avoid any suggestion of collusion between victims, the force accepts it should have been reviewed at a later stage and balanced against the confidence of victims to support the legal process.
"As the Director of Public Prosecutions has previously acknowledged, the officers working on this case were experienced and committed individuals who acted in good faith.
"We therefore support his recent announcement that the approach to victim credibility in the Criminal Justice System is flawed and the current national guidelines must be replaced.
"Surrey Police has already instigated its own programme of work to improve victim and witness care in historic sexual assault cases.
"As part of this, the Chief Constable has requested the College of Policing conduct a peer review looking at how victims and witnesses are supported to ensure we are taking the right approach going forward."
Surrey Police is growing concerned for the welfare of a teenage girl from Horley who has been missing since the weekend.
Tonie Cox, 15, was last seen in Horley Town at around 7pm on Saturday, 29 December and has not been in touch with family, friends or police since - despite repeated requests to make contact.
Tonie is described as white, 5ft 10ins tall, with mousy blonde shoulder length hair and was last seen wearing a blue Nike hooded top, blue jeans and a black and white scarf.
She has gone missing previously but has either returned home or made contact with friends or family a short time later.

Officers from Surrey Police's Missing Persons Unit are carrying out extensive enquiries to try and locate Tonie and are appealing for assistance from members of the public to trace her.
Surrey officers have been working with Sussex Police and Metropolitan Police colleagues to search areas including Hastings and St Leonards in East Sussex and Hounslow in south west London, where Tonie is known to have friends and connections.
Anyone who thinks they may have seen Tonie is asked to call Surrey Police on 101, quoting reference M/12/1328, or call independent charity Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.

Surrey police has issued a warning to cyclists after a sharp rise in the number of crashes over recent weeks.
Officers say Olympic fever, with the road race heading through the county, and the Tour de France has inspired people to get on their bikes.
*Surrey Police Superintendent Sharon Bush said: "People have been really keen to get out on their bikes thanks to the warmer weather and the excitement generated by the Olympics and the Tour de France. With that increase in number comes an increase in the number of collisions being reported. *
"We are asking for a little bit of courtesy from drivers and for them to be mindful of other road users. Likewise, we are appealing to cyclists to be visible, take care at junctions and take responsibility for their own safety."**
