Auckland Justices of the Peace Association 100 years afternoon tea

There’s an old saying that goes “if you want something done, ask a busy person”. This afternoon, Dame Cindy hosted a group that truly embodies that phrase - the Auckland Justices of the Peace Association. This year marks the Centenary of the AJAP, who have been voluntarily assisting the people of Tāmaki Makaurau since October 1922. The role of a Justice of the Peace can be Ministerial or Judicial, with duties ranging from certifying documents to issuing search warrants. The AJAP currently has 1200 sworn JPs and are able to help in over 30 languages.
