Women in Law Enforcement

From 1970 to 1990, the proportion of U.S. law enforcement officers who were women increased from about 1% to 9%. Since then, however, growth has slowed and the figure remains below 13%. The National Institute of Justice held a “research summit” in 2018 to consider the rate of progress, identify challenges as well as successes, explore women’s experiences in today’s law enforcement agencies, and look for gaps in knowledge where additional research might be valuable. This webinar series covers many of the topics discussed at the women’s summit, including recruitment and testing, promotion and assignment, navigating the police culture, work performance, and lessons from other occupations and other countries.
