AFP Badge - Generic

ACT Policing’s five stations have remained open during the lockdown for emergency police matters and will now offer limited Justice of the Peace services.

Stations in Gungahlin, Belconnen, Canberra City, Woden and Tuggeranong will open from 10.00am to 2.00pm, Monday to Friday to allow urgent and essential Justice of the Peace services.

People requiring urgent witnessing of documents MUST book ahead via (02) 5126 9121. No ‘walk-ins’ without a booking will be permitted for document requests, to allow the stations to continue operating under COVID safe rules.

ACT Policing’s Volunteers in Policing Program Manager Detective Sergeant Sharan Slater said volunteers would return to duty to offer the Justice of the Peace service.

“Our ACT Policing volunteers are extremely dedicated to helping people at our stations, so we’re pleased that we can offer Justice of the Peace services within these restricted circumstances,” Detective Sergeant Slater said.

“Not all requests may be accepted for booking as it is important that the service remains available for those urgent and essential matters.

“All volunteers will be wearing appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE) and will be taking other safety precautions during the appointments.

“When you enter the station, please follow the signage for instructions – sanitise and use the Check In CBR app.”

Stations remain accessible for urgent and time critical police matters including emergency support, violence occurring or for people to report for bail. For all other police matters, including reporting property damage, people are asked to call 131 444.

To make reports of COVID-19 non-compliance with current ACT health directions, you can complete a form via Access Canberra or contact the COVID-19 Helpline on 6207 7244 (8am-8pm, 7 days a week).

For police assistance call 131 444 and only contact Triple Zero (000) for emergencies.
