A report by the Office of the Children's Commissioner has found that many thousands of children are being sexually exploited every year across England by gangs and groups of men either for their own sexual gratification or to make money out of them.
The report also said in many cases the authorities who should protect the children are failing to do so.
Speaking to the Today programme, Peter Davies, the Association of Chief Police Officers' (Acpo) lead on child protection, said: "Our job as a police service is to do everything we can to make it right.
"We're already tackling the training issue, highlighting what the risk factors are taking them through the victim's journey.
"We're doing an awful lot already, the simple fact is there's still more to be done and we're setting about that with a vengeance, and we're making public our plan to do so today."
