The Attorney General's Office wrote following Rolf Harris' sentencing:
Harris has been sentenced to five years and nine months in prison for indecently assaulting four girls over a near 20-year period.
The police today invited people who want to speak to them following the jailing of Rolf Harris for indecent assault to do so, as they thanked the TV personality's victims for their "courage" in coming forward.
Detective Chief Inspector Michael Orchard said:
The sentence handed to Rolf Harris has been referred to the Attorney General's office under the 'unduly lenient sentence scheme', ITV News has learned.
Rolf Harris was "opportunistic and brazen" in targeting young girls who were left with lasting damage after the abuse, a children's charity said.
"Harris was opportunistic and brazen in targeting young girls and women," Peter Watt, director of national services at the NSPCC, said.
"He took advantage of their trust in him and we heard through the evidence of his courageous victims just how profoundly damaging his abuse was on them for decades after.
"This sentence reflects the seriousness of his crimes and hopefully those he preyed upon can finally find some peace. It sends a message that no one is untouchable and justice can come at any time.
"Harris has not shown any remorse for what he has done and treated the whole court case like just another performance. Thankfully the jury saw through this charade and he will now have a considerable amount of time to reflect on the impact of his crimes."
Rolf Harris showed no emotion as he was sentenced to five years and nine months in prison for a string of sexual assaults.
Harris, who earlier travelled to court by boat, remained impassive in the dock with a striped suitcase by his side.
His daughter, Bindi, watched on from the public gallery in a packed courtroom.
Rolf Harris will serve half of the five years and nine month jail term imposed on him for indecently assaulting four girls.
Mr Justice Sweeney told the 84-year-old: "Unless released earlier, you will serve half that sentence when you will be released on licence for the remainder of your sentence."
The entertainer was warned that he could be recalled to prison if he broke the terms of the licence upon his release.
Rolf Harris used his celebrity status to take advantage of the trust placed in him, a judge said, as he sentenced the 84-year-old to five years and nine months in prison.
