Tweed Valley Justices’ Association Inc.
Was formed in January 1998 and has continued to grow and develop over the years.
Located on the far north coast of New South Wales bordering Queensland in the beautiful town of Tweed Heads which is part of the Gold Coast and we aim to continue to encourage membership from all local JPs’
The Justice & Attorney-General amended the rules for all JPs in 2003 stating that all current JPs were required to re-apply and become appointed under the new regulations. This means that all JPs now must have a registration number beginning with 100,000 and any document that is witnessed by a JP must have the registration number recorded with the signature.
Regulations also included that JPs operate under a new Code of Conduct which establishes acceptable standards of conduct for JPs appointed in NSW under the Justices of the Peace Act 2002.
You must also sit an online exam every 5 years to re-apply for registration.
There are 16 points covered by the Code of Conduct which must be strictly adhered to or face the consequences of losing your appointment.
There is also a Handbook which was released in 2014 and this document is the only one that should be used for reference by JPs throughout the State of NSW.
Facial Recognition was introduced into the NSW Parliament in 2011.
