Several new reports of child sexual exploitation have been lodged with South Yorkshire Police since a damning report revealed a series of failings by the force in dealing with victims, bosses have revealed.
The force's chief constable admitted the independent report into child sex abuse in Rotherham had made for "painful" reading.
But, he said, he hoped the dossier by Prof Alexis Jay would serve as a springboard for improvements.
The report laid bare the failings of South Yorkshire Police over a number of years. This made for painful reading, however I am determined that we will use the findings of the report to ensure the mistakes of the past are not repeated.
With this in mind I have written to Professor Jay to request a meeting, which will allow us to fully understand her detailed findings and properly address any concerns both past and present.
As a result of the release of the report we have begun to see a number of new reports about child sexual exploitation. I interpret this as a sign of confidence amongst victims that the force, as it stands now, will take these matters seriously and investigate them fully.
He said only one of the four officers named in the report, Richard Tweed, remained with the force, as his position in Rotherham began in 2010.
Children as young as 11 were raped by large groups of men, a new inquiry into child sexual exploitation in Rotherham has found.
