Oklahoma DOC on RITE De-Escalation TechniquesOKLAHOMA CITY - Oklahoma Department of Corrections staff went back to the classroom this week to learn how to de-escalate conflicts behind bars. The mandatory training will help them develop skills in specifically handling racial tensions. DOC officials said this training is also timely as prisoners are more agitated from being on lockdown due to COVID-19. Former law officer Linda Webb created the Racial Intelligence Training and Encouragement course (RITE). “Racial intelligence means to not only take care of yourself as the individual,” RITE Academy Owner Linda Webb said. “But also, when you go to engage with others, you’re going to treat everybody fairly.”
Mandeville Police Department LA, makes Racial Intelligence Training mandatory for all officers“Every agency that’s out here is only one situation away from being one of those agencies that are on television” They’ve sworn to serve and protect, and now officers at the Mandeville Police Department are working to check in with themselves before hitting the streets. “Police have emotions. They have feelings. They cry,” said Training Officer Eddie Vanison. “They go through the everyday life issues that everybody else goes through.” It’s part of what’s called RITE, Racial Intelligence Training and Engagement, set to become part of mandatory officer training in October. Vanison is one of two officers certified to teach the course. “Emotions drive behavior, and if you go out in the streets and you’re feeling angry then you’re more likely to be able to bring that on to the public,” said Vanison.

You gotta Love what you do! ... Steve Jobs on the rules for successIf you dont absolutely love it, youre going to give up. And thats what happens to most people, actually. If you look at the ones that ended up being successful in the eyes of society, often times its the ones who love what they do, so they could persevere when it got really tough. Who would put up with this stuff if you dont love it? If you dont love it, youre going to fail.
