Community Relations Service

Client Needs

United States Department of Justice (DOJ), Community Relations Service (CRS) requires a diverse mixture of program support to fulfill its mission of being “peacemaker” for community conflicts and tensions arising from differences of race, color, national origin, and other jurisdictional areas in all 50 states, U.S. Territories, and Puerto Rico. LinkVisum provided an array of services to support DOJ CRS in the areas of Strategic Planning, Communications, Training, and Hate Crimes Department-wide initiatives. These services encompassed program management; communications creation and fulfillments; supporting the agency level planning activities through client working sessions; creating training documentation and delivering training nationally; developing a DOJ Department level website and related hate crimes and additional other training. LinkVisum leveraged technology and innovation to support this national level DOJ component.

Our Approach

LinkVisum managed each of the separate program areas in an integrated process of collaborating closely internally and as well as very closely with the DOJ client.  Furthermore, we encouraged close, frequent communication among our personnel whenever and wherever needed to fulfill our contractual commitments and assure quality. LinkVisum’s PM followed our ISO 9001:2008 tested and certified strategies and processes to minimize risks, and, therefore, changes seen by our customer are negligible. Using standardized methodologies and best business practices ensured we accomplish effective and efficient management and oversight of this project.
