2020-2021 Executive Summary

The Department of Justice 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, 182 Acts of Parliament.

In the past year, the second in which we have all had to contend with COVID-19, Department of Justice staff continued to demonstrate their ability to achieve and adapt in changing and difficult circumstances. Despite unexpected disruptions and snap lockdowns, staff were able to rise to the challenge to ensure the safe, effective and continued delivery of justice services. In these uncertain times the Department also celebrated many milestones and achievements, which are documented throughout this Annual Report 2020-2021.
