Samoa Corrections Services to be separated from prison

This was confirmed at their first senior management meeting yesterday.

Samoa Police said the decision is one of Commissioner Auapa’au Logoitino Filipo’s focal points for this year.

The other focus that was highlighted at the meeting was “Preparations leading up to the CHOGM 2024 conference to be held in Samoa.”

Samoa Police said “The meeting also gave time to reflect on the previous year’s work and challenges and to discuss what the organisation can improve, develop, and maintain as the year progresses.”

NZ Corrections Minister recognises work in the Pacific

Over the last ten years Corrections has sent delegations to three Pacific Islands: Vanuatu, Samoa and Pitcairn. At a celebration at Corrections National Office today, Ms Collins recognised the efforts of the first batch of recipients with the presentation of a Pacific Pin, known as the Hoe Akau.

The Hoe Akau is a steering paddle, giving direction and support to other paddlers to ensure the most efficient arrival at a given destination.
