2021-2022 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, 192 Acts of Parliament.

In the past year as the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic were felt throughout the community, the Department maintained a clear and sustained commitment to the continued delivery of safe and effective justice services and staff demonstrated their resilience and adaptability in dealing with the impacts of COVID-19. As a result, all services were maintained with limited disruption and the Department celebrated many milestones and achievements, which are documented throughout the Annual Report 2021-2022.
