South Yorkshire Police's chief constable has vowed to discipline any officer found to have acted wrongly when dealing with cases of child sexual exploitation.
It comes after a report by Prof Alexis Jay accused officers at the force of treating some of the 1,400 victims identified in Rotherham with "contempt".
Ch Cons David Crompton admitted it had outlined a "whole host" of issues.
It's clearly now my duty to take forward arrangements to look into the issues which have been raised, and that may well - if people have done things wrong - result in people being disciplined.
We've put a sixfold increase into this area of work over the last two years. We've achieved 102 prosecutions since the beginning of last year and very recently, Her Majesty's Inspectorate of Constabulary has said there is good work going on and from a policy perspective we're in a far better place than we used to be.
Now clearly, there is still far more work to be done, and I don't take that lightly. We treat this extremely seriously, and if people have clearly done things they shouldn't have done - or disregarded information which was important - we will act on that.
