The revamped Ministry of Justice (MOJ) website now showcases several interactive features designed to increase Jamaicans’ engagement with and enhance their understanding of the justice system and the services provided.

The site, which can be accessed at, now features updated information on justices of the peace in their communities, justice services, restorative justice centres, and alternative dispute resolution services.

The facility was launched during a ceremony at the ministry’s head office on Constant Spring Road in St Andrew, on Thursday (March 9).

Portfolio minister, Delroy Chuck, who addressed participants, said the website is extremely important for the ministry.

“We hope that this… will be the site that justices of the peace and the general public who seek information on justice can log on to and get all the information that they need,” he said.

Chuck said the website is a major technological improvement that will enable the ministry to become more available to, not just the public but also the diaspora.

“We will constantly upgrade the website and [upload] information as it relates to government services and how to seek other services. Today marks an important step in the information age and in the ministry, and I want to thank the team who put it together,” he said.

In an effort to move away from text-only content, the updated site also features explainer videos on the different services, eligibility and processes for applying. Persons will be able to utilise the facility’s features across different device types, including computers, mobile phones and tablets.

Permanent Secretary Grace Ann Stewart McFarlane said the user-friendly website is part of the ministry’s ongoing digital transformation thrust.

“The redesigned MOJ website is inviting you to a multisensory enriched experience. For instance, you may choose to experience our interactive photo gallery in our media centre, with events and highlights featuring our local and international partners,” she said.

Stewart McFarlane indicated that approximately 40,000 persons visiting the site have been immersed in the new experience.

“[Persons] have already used it for career possibilities or to identify the leadership team and agencies associated with the ministry. Persons may also have explored the well-populated search engine on the Laws of Jamaica or gained access to the Government of Jamaica’s email addresses now being used by our justices of the peace. We encourage you to continue using these very popular areas of our website.” she said.

The site also features an interactive “Version one Chatbot” that has been integrated with the aim of providing quick responses to visitor queries. Persons can send questions and comments on the website and justice services to [email protected]
