• Resolving Conflicts Through Mediation

  • What We Do

    The Citizens Bureau for Development and Productivity is an independent, non-profit peace-building and development organization which has its roots in the restructuring and reform of the New Liberian National Police (the Citizens Bureau has no formal connection to the Liberian National Police). It works toward the eradication of poverty in Liberia and the promotion of community policing through community justice initiatives that seek to address local disputes and which encourages partnership with national and international civil society organizations.
