New Technology Makes Finding a JP Even Easier
Local residents can now find nearby Justices of the Peace (JP) or Commissioners for Declarations (C Decs) with just a tap of their finger, thanks to a newly developed mobile website application, which was launched at the Law Week Open Day last weekend.
Members for Kallangur, Trevor Ruthenberg MP, and Pine Rivers, Seath Holswich MP, said the new technology would give the community even easier access to local JPs in their community.
"People are increasingly using technology such as smart phones and tablet computers to find information and access services when they are on the move," Mr Ruthenberg said.
"This new mobile website will help people find a JP wherever they may be, using the latest in hand-held technology, meaning local residents will have even greater access to their local justice system."
Seath Holswich said, "The application integrates an online database of JPs with Google Maps technology to connect people with their nearest JP, or a ‘JPs in the Community' signing site, when they need one."
The new application will also help keep Kallangur and Pine Rivers' 1729 JPs updated with important information about their role, such as keeping their details current, register for workshops and view technical bulletins.
The application is easily accessed from www.justice.qld.gov.au/jpapp on either smart phones or tablets, or contact the Kallangur Electorate Office on 3491 8800 or Pine Rivers Electorate office on 3205 6779.
