Finding A JP
Justices of the Peace and Commissioners for Declarations perform an incredibly important community service. I have a CDec working in my office, who can assist you during our business hours. You do not need to make an appointment, but please call (3448-2100) to confirm their availability before you visit.
Justices of the Peace can also be found in some local shopping centres and libraries:
DECEPTION BAY MARKET SQUARE:
9am-1pm Monday – Saturday
WESTFIELD NORTH LAKES:
NORTH LAKES LIBRARY:
10am – 1pm Monday to Wednesday and Friday
Becoming a Justice of the Peace of Commissioner of Declaration
Information on becoming a JP or CDec in Queensland, including the application form, can be found here.
You will note that the application requires your nomination by your local State Member. This process is now undertaken using an online process by the JP Branch, who ensure that all applications are sent to the relevant State Member of Parliament.
Certificates of Appreciation for JP’s and CDecs
If you, or someone you know, has served as a JP or CDec for 25, 40, 50 or 60 years, the Government would like to recognise your service to the community.
To nominate for a certificate of appreciation, please contact my office with the details of your JP or CDec registration.
