Abstract: In fiscal year (FY) 2010, the U.S. Department of Justice’s Community Relations Service (CRS) worked with Federal, State, and local government officials and community leaders to address conflict issues based on race, color, and national origin. CRS’s work was centered primarily in three areas: administration of justice, education, and general community relations. In the area of administration of justice, CRS’s work centered on cases dealing with issues such as police-community relations conflicts, hate crimes, allegations of bias-based policing, and conflicts stemming from police use of force. In education, CRS’s work involved cases dealing with allegations of disparities in educational opportunities resulting from biases due to race, color, or national origin. In the area of general community relations, the largest number of cases resulted from conflicts arising from demographic changes, disparities in access to public services, and conflicts arising from community development. This annual report contains an overview of the work of the CRS for FY 2010. The mission of the CRS is to aid in the prevention of violence, the resolution of conflict, and the reduction of tension in communities that are experiencing or perceiving discrimination and intolerance. The services provided by CRS are impartial and free of charge, and are designed to serve as a catalyst for peaceful resolution. The report details the major work of CRS as well as the work of CRS’s 10 regional offices. Figures and photos
