The Pasco Police Department needs to better train officers in the use of force and actively recruit a more diverse workforce that includes more Hispanics, women and Spanish speakers, according to a review by the U.S. Department of Justice that was triggered by the Feb. 10, 2015 death of Antonio Zambrano-Montes. The 35-year-old immigrant farmworker was shot at by three Pasco officers after throwing rocks. He was high on methamphetamine at the time.
