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