Having Spanish-speaking officers not city’s duty

I’m writing about the article regarding Pasco and the number of Latinos in the area. I’m sure they are hard working individuals; what concerns me is they feel the Pasco Police Department should have more officers who speak Spanish. It was my understanding that English was the official language of the United States. When I traveled to foreign countries and I didn’t speak the language I considered it my problem not theirs.
