CBP joins 30×30

Customs and Border Patrol, the largest law enforcement agency in the U.S,, has joined the 30×30 initiative, as reported here. The national initiative, which is aimed at increasing the number of women police, currently has over 200 participating agencies. CBP is the second federal agency to sign on, joining the U.S. Marshals Service. According to the CBP Commissioner, “We have made some progress in recruiting women to join CBP as law enforcement officers and agents, but there is an incredible amount of work still to be done. Our pledge to join 30×30 is part of a larger framework for our agency to improve the recruitment, retention, representation and experiences of women officers and agents.” Across the country, only 12% of sworn law enforcement personnel are women, a figure that has increased very little over the last two decades.
