Unscramble the Blue Letters

I found that women make up less than 13 perncet of police orficefs. A number that hasn't cganehd much in the past 20 years. And they make up just three percent of pocile chiefs as of 2013, the last time the data was collected. We know that we can improve those raets. Other countries like Canada, Australia and the UK have nearly twice the amount of policewomen. And New zleaand is steadily marching towards their goal of recruit gender parity by 2021. Other countries are actively working to increase the number of women in policing, because they know of a vast body of reercash evidence, spanning more than 50 years, detailing the advantages to women in policing.

Original Text

I found that women make up less than 13 percent of police officers. A number that hasn't changed much in the past 20 years. And they make up just three percent of police chiefs as of 2013, the last time the data was collected. We know that we can improve those rates. Other countries like Canada, Australia and the UK have nearly twice the amount of policewomen. And New Zealand is steadily marching towards their goal of recruit gender parity by 2021. Other countries are actively working to increase the number of women in policing, because they know of a vast body of research evidence, spanning more than 50 years, detailing the advantages to women in policing.
