The Community Relations Service (CRS) employs conciliation, mediation, technical assistance, and training techniques to provide free services to communities in preventing, reducing, and resolving racial and ethnic conflicts. Through conciliation, CRS facilitates communication among disputing parties. Through mediation, CRS intervenes to promote the settlement of disputes through the terms of an oral or written agreement between the disputing parties. Through technical assistance, CRS provides subject matter expertise to communities by providing such services as: participating in and facilitating community meetings and task forces; and sponsoring, cosponsoring, or making presentations at conferences and forums. CRS conducts training in such areas as community policing, police/community relations, response to hate crimes, and conflict resolution techniques (e.g., law enforcement mediation). CRS also develops resource materials and prepares articles for publication on preventing and resolving racial and ethnic conflicts in communities.
