The Middletown Police Department recently 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.
Chief Muterspaw, Lieutenant Dave Birk and Officer Sheoki Reece took part in a radio interview explaining the training and the benefits for all participating police departments.
Hats off to Chief Muterspaw for a great interview and for having the foresight to bring this training to Middletown! To listen to the interview, click on the link below:
