The 30X30 Police Initiative
As of 2021, women make up only 12% of sworn officers and 3% of police leadership in the U.S. We are proud to be a member of the 30x30 initiative to increase the number of women recruits to 30% by 2030 and support women officers throughout their careers. The 30x30 Pledge is a series of no or low-cost actions policing agencies can take to improve the representation and experiences of women in sown positions in all ranks.
UMMC is the only agency in the state of Mississippi to sign the 30x30 Pledge. Visit the 30x30 Initiative website to learn more.
