“This is NOT your 1980’s cultural diversity training, that put our officers down. We looked for a less academic, easy-to-use training, with better ways for our officers to communicate, and to De-Escalate situations more effectively. RITE training supports our officers, our department, AND our community.” ~ Chief Rob Hicks


The Executive LEADERSHIP Course is a one-day training for command staff and executive leaders. RITE Academy created this advanced cultural diversity class, combining (6) key modules of Emotional and Social Intelligence which has been improving officer’s lives on a professional as well as personal level. 

Build trust between your agency and the community, while sustaining career resiliency for your officers. Emotional Intelligence combined with Social Intelligence helps officers use enhanced verbal skills, on 95% of calls.
