More about JPs
JP volunteers play an important role in the Justice system and provide a valuable and accessible service to all members of the community.
JPs are volunteers appointed by the Governor-in-Council on the recommendation of the Attorney-General in accordance with section 7 of the Honorary Justices Act 2014. JP volunteers are part of a collective group known as Honorary Justices. As such, there is an expectation that JP volunteers will respect, observe and adhere to the highest levels of personal, social and community standards of integrity and professionalism to ensure that all Victorians are provided with an independent, fair and impartial service.
The role of a JP volunteer is customer focused and administrative as they provide document witnessing and certification services to the broader community both during and outside business hours.
