Important update for all JP’s

New Justices of the Peace online system

  • If your appointment is due to expire you will need to complete your application for reappointment online using the new system. As part of the change, all current JP’s will need to successfully complete the JP Knowledge Test each time they apply for reappointment. Paper applications will no longer be accepted for reappointment.
  • If you do not have an email address, you will need to create one as part of the reappointment application process as all correspondence moved entirely online from April 2019.
