August 8, 2018 - August 9, 2018

Chief Thomas Phillips and the Northern Illinois University Police Department (NIU), is the hosting agency. Only 45 miles from Chicago’s O’Hare Airport, the training site will held at NIU DeKalb Campus. Registration is currently OPEN until 40 spots are filled.




The Racial Intelligence Train-the-Trainer Course is the most progressive diversity training for public service professionals. Helping the officer understand their Emotional Intelligence (EI) and Social Intelligence (SI):

  • Improves Communication (for work and home-life balance)
  • Builds Morale in the department
  • Become a Guardian for the community and in the schools


The Racial Intelligence Train-the-Trainer Course is the most progressive cultural diversity training for all public service professionals. Helping the officer understand their EI and SI which improves communication, and builds morale.

We have 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. Help your department head towards a bias-free.


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?

Old cultural diversity training (teaching officers what they’re doing wrong) is ineffective in improving police-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.


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
