Notes from November Council Meeting

The Council of the Auckland Justices of the Peace Association met on November 9, 2022. 

  • Currently there are delays in the process of getting provisionally-appointed Justices gazetted by the Ministry of Justice – an essential step before being sworn in. It is hoped that this will be resolved shortly to enable greater numbers to be sworn in next year.
  • Our Technology Team reminded us of the vulnerability of client data stored electronically on the cloud. We need to ensure that only a minimum of identifiable client data is recorded in a Justice’s (preferably paper) logbook.
  • We have initial plans for a Support Group Co-ordinators and Rosterers meeting in April 2023.
  • Plans to fund five accredited AJPA members to attend the Annual Royal Federation conference in Invercargill 10-12th March 2023 were tabled. Calls for expressions of interest from Justices wishing to increase their involvement in the activities of AJPA will be made shortly.
  • The Centenary Committee of AJPA have had their last meeting following the Centenary dinner last month. Council expressed thanks to the committee for their work organising successful centenary celebrations. There will be an article in an upcoming JQ with photos from these events.  A commemorative plaque is to be placed on the wall of the original Magistrates’ Court (now the Metropolis) in central Auckland in the next few weeks, to complete the celebrations.
