The Association provides advice and assistance to Justices of the Peace throughout Western Australia.
JPs are volunteers and do not get paid.

Justices of the Peace may;

  • preside a Magistrate court
  • sign search warrants for the Police,
  • authorise the issuing of summons for Police,
  • preside a Prison court,
  • assess & approve bail and surety applications,
  • witness public documents.

A Justice of the Peace should be willing to perform the duties of a JP when called upon.
Becoming a JP is a great step toward assisting your local community and in certain areas, national and international communities.
