I wish to inform the Deputy that there are 5,161 persons listed on the Roll of Peace Commissioners held by my Department.

While every effort is made to keep the Roll up to date, the records do not always reflect the actual situation on the ground because the Department is informed by Peace Commissioners themselves and other interested parties of changes in the circumstances of individual Peace Commissioners since their appointment, for example if they resign from office or pass away.

The Department’s Peace Commissioner Unit updates the Roll when advised of relevant changes.
