THE RITE WAY: An Ethics Train-the-Trainer
“Responsibility and Integrity Through Ethics”
Grafton, Wisconsin, USA

This course focuses on establishing a communication standard for ethical decision making and leadership for all personnel within a given law enforcement agency. THE RITE WAY or “Responsibility and Integrity Through Ethics” program is designed to be delivered to all personnel within a given agency by graduates of this course.
Through establishing a common “ethical language,” THE RITE WAY seeks to empower agency members through education. Personnel will learn ethical decision-making models, strategies for creating and maintaining a healthy ethical climate, leadership fundamentals based in character and integrity that will empower intervention when wrongdoing is observed; and many other professional and philosophical principles rooted in classical thought.
THE RITE WAY reinforces concepts associated with community policing, building bridges with our communities through procedural justice and police legitimacy; as well as building connectiveness and trust within law enforcement agencies. THE RITE WAY gives people skillsets to be able to do the “right thing” when one finds oneself faced with an ethical dilemma. THE RITE WAY does not just tell someone the right thing to do… it teaches one how to do it.
Successful completion of this program will authorize graduates to present the eight hour Law Enforcement Ethics and the sixteen-hour Ethics for Field Training Officers courses within their own agencies or local/regional academies.
Your agency’s participation in this program will have a win-win result. The participants who attend will receive valued training of national caliber that will benefit your agency with personnel who can then "carry the message" to your fine men and women.
Tuition includes all instruction and handouts. Lodging and meals are excluded.
