The Department of Justice is committed to participating in the conversation on justice issues. One of the key ways we seek to accomplish this is through the use of social media. Like many government departments, we are exploring how best to use social media to accomplish our mission and keep the public informed about what we do.

This policy shows the social media that we are currently making use of, what can be expected on each of them, and how we interact with members of the public on these platforms.  Social media updates will usually be made by staff of the Department’s Press and Communications Office or Social Media Team.

The Department is not responsible, liable for and does not endorse the privacy practices of any linked websites. Your use of social media websites is at your own risk. We assume no responsibility or liability for any injury, loss or damage incurred as a result of any use or reliance upon the information and material contained within or downloaded from these Channels.

We have five social media accounts – Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Linkedin, and Youtube – at present. Below are the policies for these accounts.
