For all the progress made on the ethnic diversity front, female officers make up just 10% of the Glendale Police Department's sworn staff, records show.
Of the 244 sworn officers employed with the Police Department last year, 219 were men and 25 were women.
But the ratio here is higher than that of similarly sized law enforcement agencies elsewhere, such as those in Ontario or Modesto.
As of 2011, 12 women held sworn positions in the Modesto Police Department, which had 230 officers. And of the 224 sworn officers in Ontario, 214 were men and 10 were women.
Of the 235 sworn officers in Oxnard in 2011, 212 were men and 23 were women. One woman, however, is that department's first female chief, Jeri Williams.
In Glendale, two women held positions as a lieutenant last year, while one was a sergeant and three were agents. Seven men were lieutenants, while 38 were sergeants and nine were agents. Men held all of the department's captain positions, as well as the chief's job.
