Women within the Phoenix Police Department

Women in Blue

The Phoenix Police Department strives to hire, retain, and empower women in our organization. Currently, women make up 14% of sworn officers on our department and we are striving to increase those numbers to our workforce. Women on our team play an integral role throughout all ranks of our department to meet the expectations of our diverse community. 

The Phoenix Police Department proudly supports the 30×30​ Initiative. The 30×30 Initiative is a coalition of police leaders, researchers, and professional organizations who have joined together to advance the representation and experiences of women in policing agencies across the United States. 

The ultimate goal is to increase the representation of women in police recruit classes to 30% by 2030, and to ensure police policies and culture intentionally support the success of qualified women officers throughout their careers.

Check out these amazing women who come from all different backgrounds and play a vital role in the Phoenix Police Department.​​
