The Kits will be used at Service Desks operated by the Auckland Justices of the Peace Association across Greater Auckland. They contain “tools of trade” for Justices including a tablet, rubber stamps, a Manual and a folder with forms and statutory documents frequently used.
The Kits await distribution to Service Desks
Detailing the Kits at today’s meeting, Dawn Jones said the project to support Service Desks in this way has been some 5 years in the making and came to fruition only when funds became available last year. Among other items, the kits provide some of the less-frequently used rubber stamps which Justices are reluctant to buy themselves, including Exhibit Note, copy certified as downloaded from the internet and a date stamp. Also included is a small stamp pad, easing the task of putting fingerprints on overseas documents requiring this form of identification.
Typical kit with tablet for use at Service Desks
Dawn, who led the project, assessed what was wanted, made the purchases - “I chased best-priced items at stores across Auckland!” - and organised a series of working bees to put all the items in the bags. They’re expected to be put in use at Service Desks right away.
