Justice of the peace

Justice of the Peace (JP) volunteers play an important role in the Justice system and provide a valuable and accessible service to all members of the community. They have the power to witness a range of legal documents, including statutory declarations and affidavits, and to certify true copies of documents.

The JP volunteer at Bargoonga Nganjin, North Fitzroy Library has finished for 2023.

This service will be returning in 2024 at Fitzroy Library. This page will be updated with dates and times, when they become available.
