In the 2017/2018 financial year, the former Departments of the Attorney General and Corrective Services merged to become the Department of Justice.
2019-2020 Executive Summary
The Department supports the community, Western Australian Government, judiciary and State Parliament through the provision of access to high-quality justice, legal and corrective services, information and products.
The Department is the agency principally responsible for assisting the Attorney General and the Minister for Corrective Services in developing and implementing policy and the administration of, and compliance with, approximately 200 Acts of Parliament.
The past financial year was both a challenging and highly productive period that has demonstrated the delivery of significant legislative reforms; continued progress of key infrastructure expansion projects; and increasing demand for services. This combined with the operational impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic stretched the Department’s resources.
I am proud of the Department's staff who have continued to meet these challenges and who have worked diligently and tirelessly to deliver results, often within short timeframes, during this difficult time.
In line with State Government policy, the Department of Justice annual reports are only available online.
