Racial Intelligence Training For Local Police
Emotions aren't always talked about in the police academy but now they're the focus of a new kind of training. The Middletown Police Departmentrecently hosted a two-day course in Racial Intelligence Training and Engagement (RITE).
The goal is to de-escalate situations, build better community engagement and prevent deadly encounters. Officers from nine Ohio departments participated.
Here to discuss the training is RITE Academy Co-founder and Director of Training Randy Friedman; and from the Middletown Police Department, Chief Rodney Muterspaw, Lt. David Burkeand Officer Sheoki Reece.
