The one message which came through your questionnaires of the public -- this is 8265, still part of your answer to question 58:

"The public associate integrity with being treated fairly by the police. The public association of integrity with fairness suggests that they see inappropriate relationships and the conflicts of interest that might arise as a consequence to be one dimension of police integrity, but not the only one, and this has implications for the police if they're seeking to tackle corruption and inappropriate relationships from the perception of the service users or the public more generally."

That's an important point. It's a point which came through Elizabeth Filkin's evidence as well.

Can I ask you about the point you make at the bottom of the page about governance, oversight and control? In a nutshell, what is the point that you are making there? I appreciate it's developed in the report.
