Increasing women recruits

This 7-minute NPR segment discusses efforts underway to increase the representation of women among American police. A current national initiative, 30X30, has the goal of achieving 30% women recruits by 2030, which would more than double today’s proportion. The segment discusses the evidence about performance by women officers, as well as barriers to recruitment and retention. It also highlights the Madison, Wisconsin police department, an agency that already has 28% sworn women, compared to the national average of 12-13%.
