Swearing in of magistrates


By 2020 Tricia Thomas

We now have 6 new magistrates!

What an honour to play a small part at the swearing in ceremony of six new magistrates at Hereford Justice Centre.
Having been through the selection process and full training, they now start their careers as Justices of the Peace, committing time to bring vital life experience and common perspective to the justice system. Congratulations to them all.

Anyone aged between 18 and 70 can sit as a magistrate and full training is provided. If you would like to find out how to become a magistrate, now is the time as recruitment is open, but closes soon on 31.12.2020. Email SWM.advisory@justice.gov.uk or click the link for more details.
