US DOJ Community Relations Service 2011 Annual Report.
From an annual report...

WHAT WE DO
The Community Relations Service (CRS) helps local communities address tension associated with allegations of discrimination on the basis of race, color, and national origin. CRS also helps communities develop the capacity to more effectively prevent and respond to violent hate crimes committed on the basis of actual or perceived race, color, national origin, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, religion, or disability. CRS provides impartial and confidential conciliation and mediation services intended to enhance local capacity to alleviate, solve, and respond to future conflicts more effectively.

CRS is a non-enforcement and non-prosecutorial component of the U.S. Department of Justice.

HOW WE DO IT
Trained impartial CRS conflict resolution specialists are stationed in 10 Regional and 4 local field offices across the country. CRS is available to provide services when requested by local authorities, community leaders, or whenever potentially volatile community tensions requiring our intervention develop. For each situation, CRS will first assess the situation, which includes hearing everyone’s perspective. After gaining a comprehensive understanding of the situation, CRS will fashion an agreement between stakeholders on the services to be provided to help resolve the conflict or prevent further tension.

WHO WILL BENEFIT
Most of our work comes from requests by police chiefs, mayors, school administrators, other local and state authorities, community-based organizations, and civil and human rights groups. They ask CRS to help when there is a community conflict and when they believe impartial mediators from CRS can help reduce tensions, prevent violence, and get people talking. CRS works in all 50 states and the U.S. territories, and in communities large and small, rural, suburban, and urban.
