While gender parity is an important point, women officers bring a unique value that solves many of the challenges agencies across the US are facing.

  • Women officers use less force or excessive force and are less likely to fire their firearms in the course of their careers.
  • They use their discretion to make fewer arrests for minor or misdemeanor offenses. When they do traffic stops, they are more likely to find contraband.
  • Women officers are associated with better outcomes for victims of crime, particularly for victims of sexual assault.
  • Community members typically see women officers as more trustworthy and compassionate

This webinar will examine the 30×30 Initiative – from concept and inception, to existing best practices.  Maureen Quinn McGough, (Chief of Strategic Initiatives for the Policing Project at NYU Law, and Co-Founder of the 30×30 Initiative) will outline the benefits of women officers within policing, and how 30×30 will help police departments with recruiting and retention of female officers. Chief Ken Clary, (Bellevue Police Department) will discuss the impact the pledge has had on his department – how it has changed their approach to hiring – and how it is helping to build a culture of inclusion. Sergeant Theresa Magyera, (Madison (WI) Police Department) will give specific examples that can be tailored to your organization to increase women’s representation within your organization – as we work to make our police forces more demographically representative of the populations we serve.

While gender equity in and of itself is important, advancing women in policing also shows promise for improving public safety outcomes and addressing some of policing’s persistent challenges.

More than 200 agencies–ranging in size from major metropolitan police departments to smaller, rural agencies–have taken the 30×30 Pledge, a series of low- and no-cost actions policing agencies can take to improve the representation and experiences of women in law enforcement. The activities help policing agencies assess the current state of a department with regard to gender equity, identify factors that may be driving any disparities, and develop and implement strategies and solutions to eliminate barriers. These actions address recruitment, assessment, hiring, retention, promotion, and agency culture. Learn more by visiting
