No resignation. But an apology - and a promise to rethink the way she engages with the public, the police and the media.
Those were the pledges made by Kent Police and Crime Commissioner Ann Barnes today after two hours of tough questioning by the committee that oversees her work.
She was grilled about her decision to allow a fly-on-the-wall TV documentary - that was said to make the police look a 'laughing stock'.
Sarah Saunders spoke to Kent Policing and Crime Comissioner Ann Barnes; showed footage of the Channel 4 documentary; heard from Mark Reckless MP for Rochester and Strood; Gordon Cowan, Leader of the Labour Group; and Mike Hill, Chair of the Police and Crime Panel.
Kent's youth crime tsar, Kerry Boyd, has been temporarily suspended following allegations she had a close relationship with married former Kent county councillor Robert Burgess.
Electrical engineer Mr Burgess told the Sun newspaper: "I have been very close with Kerry. She is quite upset by all the allegations. I am devastated. I care for her a lot."
We are concerned that Kerry did not feel able to disclose the full extent of her personal circumstances earlier but as further enquiries are taking place it would be inappropriate for us to comment further.

The Youth Commissioner for Kent, Kerry Boyd, is under fire following reports of a close relationship with a 50-year-old ex-Tory Councillor, according to the Sun. Ann Barnes office said the 20-year-old has been temporarily relieved off her duties whilst enquiries continue.
We are supporting Kerry at this difficult time for her. We are concerned that Kerry did not feel able to disclose the full extent of her personal circumstances earlier but as further enquiries are taking place it would be inappropriate for us to comment further.
As part of our support for Kerry she is not undertaking any public engagements for the time being.
