New Women's Prison Warden

Posted: Updated:
BILLINGS, Mont. -

The Montana Women's Prison has a new warden.

Former Deputy for Treatment Services Joan Daly will head up the women's prison. She also spent seven years as Director of Psychiatry for Billings Clinic. Daly's first official day will be Monday.

"What I plan to do is really marry the correctional security piece to the treatment and make it a partnership that's functional and putting the inmate at the center of what we're doing here," says Daly.

Daly will succeed the former warden Jo Acton. She was under investigation and placed on administrative leave in March.
