PASCO — The Department of Justice has completed its review of the Pasco Police Department that was launched after the fatal shooting of a Mexican national in 2015.

The agency’s community oriented policing deputy director says the department is making great strides toward improving the relationship it has with Pasco residents.

Robert Chapman also highlighted Pasco police’s engaging with the community through social media in an impressive manner.

The Tri-City Herald reports that Pasco police asked for the help after the fatal police shooting of Antonio Zambrano-Montes in 2015. The shooting was captured on video and sparked weeks of peaceful protests.

Local, state and federal prosecutors cleared the officers in that shooting of any wrongdoing, but officials requested federal help.

The Justice Department found that Pasco police needed to better train officers in use of force and hire a more diverse police force — especially Latinos.
