The Los Angeles Police Department is investigating dozens of alleged cases of sexual assault involving members of the entertainment industry, a source told ABC News Tuesday.

The source inside the department told ABC News that there are 28 cases currently being investigated by the LAPD.

The LAPD has also taken 37 reports of incidents that occurred outside their jurisdiction to be given to other police departments, according to the source.

According to the Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office, there are no cases currently being reviewed by its task force for prosecution.

The latest revelation about the cases come in the wake of confirmation by Beverly Hills police that their department is investigating 12 cases of alleged sexual assault involving the entertainment industry.
