The Justice and Community Safety (JACS) Directorate is committed to giving the community greater access to government information.
You can locate an ACT Justice of the Peace in a number of ways.

All feedback submissions via any of the Access Canberra facilities – phone, online, over the counter, or in writing, are directed to the Directorate.
