Show Notes

In this episode of Topping the Curve I interview Jessica Battle, the Lead Counsel at the Charlotte Mecklenburg Police Department. 

Throughout the episode Jessica discusses what it means to be a Police Counsel and what her day-to-day work entails. Jessica also discusses the importance of her role in light of the black lives matter movements and the current climate of our nation. 

  • Advising police on legal matters
  • Being a woman of color in the police department
  • Changing the institution and not letting the institution change her
  • Litigating as a police attorney for the city of Charlotte
  • Evaluating protests from law enforcement perspective
