Information for JPs

Finding a JP 

Becoming a JP 

icon_important.pngApplicants seeking MP nomination must print their application form and take it, with all original supporting documents, to the MP's office: emailed application forms and copied supporting documents (not originals) sent to an MP's office cannot be considered for nomination as originals of each are required by the nominating MP.


icon_important.pngWhen reapplying to continue as a JP you must disclose all criminal offences (including Section 10 bonds where no conviction was recorded) every time you reapply. This is no matter the age of the offence or if disclosed in a previous application.
