confidence in the police

Having a police force which has the confidence of the public is an essential thing. Finland seems to enjoy such a situation.

The situation is quite the reverse in Australia where any number of royal commissions into the corruption and behavior of the Police is something which would seem more in place in under developed countries. Even after some century of cleanups the situation still requires attention. The latest step in this direction in Queensland>may make a difference ... but I wouldn't be counting on it restoring much of the public confidence in the Police here.
