HSI El Paso Hosts ‘Women and Weapons’ shooting event

EL PASO, Texas (KVIA)-- Homeland Security Investigation hosted the first ever Women and Weapons shooting event. Their goal is to recruit more women to join law enforcement.

In Texas women make up only 11.5% of law enforcement. HSI's action plan is called 30 x 30 initiative, it means they strive to have 30% of women in law enforcement by 2030.

ABC-7 spoke with special agent Monica Arvizubatres , who has worked with HSI for 15 years she said this event is important because it brings women together to empower each other and share stories for things they've overcome.

This is the first Women and Weapons event but Arvizubatres says they will be back next year and hopefully with more women.
