Two weeks ago, Izinna Lytle joined the Pittsfield Police Department. Although she says she’s just trying to do her job, Lytle is a trailblazer — the first black female police officer in the city’s history. 

Lytle and her mentor Detective Kim Bertelli-Hunt sat down with WAMC Berkshire Bureau Chief Josh Landes to talk about her appointment.
