JUSTICE OF THE PEACE SERVICE – Temporary Suspension from 23rd March.

After considerable deliberation, Justices of the Peace Branch (JP Branch) has made the decision to temporarily suspend the JPs in the Community program from Saturday, 21 March 2020.

The JPs in the Community Program’s greatest resource is it’s volunteers, JP Branch has decided suspending the service was the most appropriate course of action for the safety and care of our volunteers, particularly taking into account:

  • that program signing sites are extremely busy places
  • that due to their age, many of our volunteers are considered to be at high risk
  • continuing our service at various signing site venues would go against proposed social distancing measures.

The suspension will be temporary, JP Branch will continue to communicate with all volunteers and site hosts around resumption of the service.

In this interim period, the After-hours JP Search function, on the JP webpage, will be the main avenue for the community to access witnessing officers.
