RITE and Frontline Strong Together (FST-5) – November 8-9, 2022. (see details below)

FST5 frontline strong together

The Frontline Strong Together Project (FST-5), funded by the State of Michigan, aims to provide resources that offer assistance to first responders focusing on de-escalating tactics, mental health, including alcohol and substance use, along with when and where to get help, resources for mental health treatment; and coping mechanisms for stress and trauma.

This first responder training program will feature trained professionals familiar with specific insight into these issues to offer the best quality of help.

This 2-day RITE Trainer-the-Trainer Class is Open for Registration to ALL Michigan First responders.


RITE’s Train-the-Trainer is nationally recognized in encouraging a bias-free workplace. Our classes include a unique combination of emotional intelligence skill-building, that includes years of research to give your employees a sole-source experience that can not be duplicated.

 “RITE Training benefits ALL in Public Service”



With proven RESULTS that RITE Training decreases use of force, Racial Intelligence combines Emotional Intelligence (EI) and Social Intelligence (SI), which has been successfully used in corporations for years. This helps your department develop a bias-free community.


Definition of Racial Intelligence: “The practice of using Emotional Intelligence (EI), Social Intelligence (SI), and the RITE Tools, to treat ourselves and others fairly.” Learn more about EI and SI…


How does the RITE model work?

RITE improves the officer’s communication skills (first), so they can engage more effectively with others. De-escalation techniques, Implicit bias understanding while using EI, empowers the officer with better, more effective decision-making (for themselves and the department). Improved engagement and morale is noticed in the department, and builds Community trust.

Beyond this training helping the first responder to do their job better, RITE benefits the human behind the badge, and how they personally handle stress at home. This huge benefit helps the first responder stay healthy throughout their career, and into retirement.


Trainers will learn the RITE 3-prong approach:

  1. Officer Communication Skills: Emotional Intelligence Tools for Resiliency and De-escalation; to use personally and professionally
  2. Improve the Department: Social Intelligence helps with Bias-free policing, Recruiting, Improve morale, and Accountability
  3. Build the Community Relations: Bias-free policing will Enhance public trust
