Latter-day Saint Prison Officer Makes a Difference in Lives of Inmates

“[Daisy] Tanuvasa is 43 and lives in Clendon. She's been an officer at the Auckland Region Women's Corrections Facility since it opened in 2006,” the Manukau Courier reports this week.

“Originally from Samoa, she took a job with the corrections department so she could get permanent residency in New Zealand. Soon, though, it became a career - she's now a principal corrections officer and heads up a team.”
