Meet The Team


Scott Guthrie

Ph: 021-270-6889


As co-founder of TJF, Scott comes with a great passion for this country and simply could see other, more common sense ways of dealing with Law, order and justice.

Scott has an extensive background of working with victims and offenders alike. 

Scott lives by the motto “ victims are paramount in any type of crime”  but New Zealand needs to find a better way of dealing with the offender, hence the creation of Transforming Justice Foundation (TJF). 

TJF and Scott alike promotes I.R.P Intervention and Rehabilitation equals Prevention. 


“Let’s make New Zealand safe again and actually work with the problems instead of closing the door on them and trying to make them go away”


Tania Baron


Tania comes with a wealth of policing experience having spent over 20 years as a police officer.

In her last policing role, Tania, a commissioned officer, was in charge of a number of teams in the Southern District. More recently Tania was appointed as a counsellor on the Otago Automobile Association.

As co-founder of TJF, Tania is committed to making NZ a safe place for all and believes this can only be fully realized through a combination of intervention, prevention and rehabilitation.
