Detective Inspector Tusha Penny is police national manager of Child Protection and Sexual Violence. She runs a dedicated facility where specialist staff focus purely on cases of child abuse and adult sexual offending around the country. It's a far cry from just seven years ago, when Tusha Penny uncovered a backlog of child abuse files in the Wairarapa - some files had been hidden in cabinets or simply "lost" in the system. That lead to an inquiry which revealed widespread issues across the country in child abuse investigations, and ultimately lead to the unit she heads today. She’ll speak to Kathryn about her work.
