CRS Collaborates on Creation of DOJ Hate Crimes Website

The Community Relations Service (CRS) collaborated with other components of the Department of Justice (DOJ) to develop the Hate Crimes Website, which officially launched on Monday, October 29, 2018.

The new website provides a centralized portal for the DOJ’s hate crimes resources for victims, law enforcement, researchers, civil rights groups, media, and other related organizations and individuals. The resources include training materials, technical assistance, videos, research reports, statistics, and other helpful information from all the DOJ components working on hate crimes.

Combating hate crimes is one of the Department’s highest priorities. The Department combats hate crimes through prevention, education, outreach, data collection, and support for state, local, and tribal law enforcement. In addition to CRS, the DOJ components involved in the creation of the website are the Civil Rights Division, Criminal Division, Executive Office for United States Attorneys, Federal Bureau of Investigation, Office of Community Oriented Policing Services, and Office of Justice Programs.

We encourage you to visit the hate crimes website to learn more about how you can help prevent and respond to hate crimes in your community. For more information, please refer to the following DOJ press releases:
