The Attorney General's Ministry informs that all Justices of the Peace, including Senior Justices of the Peace, must contact the Ministry to verify their JP status before July 31, 2018. This exercise is being carried out in preparation for the upcoming re-registration process by the Elections and Boundaries Department.

All Justices of the Peace are required to provide some form of proof of their status. Kindly note that the JP certificate can be used as proof of status. Each person must also provide their contact information to the Ministry. Those who fail to verify their status will no longer be able to use their JP title. Persons can either visit the office of the Attorney General in Belmopan or contact the office via email at [email protected].

Attorney General's Ministry Clarifies Concerns on Justices of the Peace Verification

The Attorney General's Ministry informs the public, particularly all Justices of the Peace (JP), that the Ministry is the only regulatory body for JPs.

Verification is to be done directly and only with the Attorney General's Ministry.

In reference to the re-verification process being carried out, JPs are reminded that the deadline to verify your status is on July 31, 2018. Persons who do not do so by the deadline will no longer be able to exercise their authority as a Justice of the Peace.

The purpose of this re-verification exercise is not only for the voters re-registration, but to organize the JP system and update the database/records of the Attorney General's Ministry which dates back to 1914. The Ministry needs to update the contact information for all JPs and remove the names of deceased JPs and individuals who no longer wish to volunteer their service to the citizens of Belize.

Verification can be done in-person at the Attorney General's Ministry office in Belmopan, or a copy of the JP certificate can be sent to [email protected]. On Fridays only, persons can take their certificates to the Ministry's Belize City office from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. for verification.

Justices of the Peace are also informed that it is not a requirement to be a part of a JP association.

There will be NO appointments of new JPs until the verification process is over.
