  • The AJPA website continues to be a huge source of information for both clients and JPs, with JP Locator receiving nearly 20,000 hits last month.
  • Accreditation levels in AJPA remain fairly stable, at 80% of members.  This fluctuates as individual JPs renew their Accreditation. Remember that attending a HUB session fulfils the training component of accreditation, and you need to record you attendance on the website (justiceofthepeace.org.nz) .
