Empowering Women in Law Enforcement: Breaking Barriers, Inspiring Change

Women are underrepresented in policing. Join us as we explore the challenges and solutions for recruiting women in policing.

About the webinar

Law enforcement agencies are losing their workforce for many reasons, making protecting the communities they serve more challenging.

Hiring the best possible officers while ensuring the force is bridging diversity gaps is challenging.

Women comprise only 12% of sworn officers and 3% of police leadership in the United States.

Women have been significantly underrepresented in policing since the profession’s founding.

Various efforts nationwide, like the groundbreaking work of the National Center for Women and Policing, advanced women in policing and built a research and evidence foundation – but we still have a long way to go.

We’ve gathered a panel to discuss workforce hiring and diversity challenges. Panelists will share their thoughts and learnings.

You will:

  • Discover ways agencies and individuals can modernize processes and technologies to entice new officers.
  • Find out what skills are needed to be more effective in policing’s new digital era.
  • Explore ways agencies can manage and track the progress of diverse recruitment and share with the community.
