The Middletown Division of Police is hosting a two-day, Racial Intelligence Training and Engagement (RITE) for 20 officers around the state this week.
The training will be held Wednesday and Thursday in the City Building, said Chief Rodney Muterspaw. He said two Middletown officers will attend and they will train other Middletown officers.
Muterspaw called it “incredible training” and he said the RITE Academy has become “one of the most well attended, innovative and progressive” classes in the country.
Officers will learn better communications, social intelligence and how to better build the community relations, according to the Muterspaw.
