The 30×30 pledge is a Nationwide effort to recruit more women to policing and in particular to leadership positions in policing. The ultimate goal is to increase the representation of women in sworn law enforcement positions to 30% by 2030 and to ensure police policies and culture intentionally support the success of qualified women officers throughout their careers. Help us spread the word – we’re looking for females interested in a career in law. Visit nnva.gov/recruit. #30x30
