The Director retains the ability to exercise in full all the duties that this Act delegates to other Officers. Authorisation from the Director to address the High Court on behalf of the Region is required.

The Information & Investigations Division is the main investigative & law enforcement organ of the NWE. They are responsible for assisting the Department in criminal investigations, offering advice and leadership and to protect the NWE from foreign influence/terrorism.

Section 1

Attorneys shall be selected by the Director, and the Director may establish certain reasonable criteria for the position.

Attorneys, while in contact with the Department to properly carry out their duties, may learn classified information about ongoing investigations of the Department, or any other kind. They are required to keep any and all such information secret, unless under orders/authorization from the Justice Director to do otherwise.
