Racial Intelligence 2-Day TRAINER: OCT 3-4, 2017 (Fort Worth, TX)

October 3, 2017 - October 4, 2017

Chief Barbara Childress and the Richland Hills Police Dept. are hosting. Richland Hills, Texas is located 15 miles from DFW Airport. This course is TCOLE Eligible for 16 CEU. Limited class size!!



This is NOT an 1980’s cultural diversity training. We looked for an easy-to-use training, with better ways for our officers to communicate with the public, and to De-Escalate situations more effectively. RITE Trainer course supports our officers, our department, AND our community. Our entire department has been trained in Racial Intelligence, and it was worth the time and money!” ~ Chief Rob Hicks


The Train-the-Trainer Racial Intelligence Course is the most progressive officer wellness training on the market today, because it helps the officer understand their EI and SI for improved communication. Racial Intelligence combines Emotional Intelligence (EI) and Social Intelligence (SI), which has been successfully used in corporations for years.

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 here…


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).


Trainers 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 Recruiting, Improve morale, and Accountability
  3. Build the Community Relations: Enhance public trust
