Montgomery County Police has signed on to the 30x30 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 and advance women in policing. These actions address recruitment, assessment, hiring, retention, promotion, and agency culture.

As of 2022, women make up only 12% of sworn officers in the United States. Montgomery County Police exceeds the national average at 20%. We are proud to be a member of the @30x30initiative to increase the number of women recruits to 30% by 2030 and support women officers throughout their careers. Let’s make it happen!
