Police officers from both the Antioch and Pittsburg police departments are part of an active investigation by the FBI and Contra Costa County District Attorney’s Office for a range of unspecified crimes.

The crimes are described as a “broad range of offenses” involving crimes of moral turpitude, according to a March 25 press release by the office, and involves officers from both departments.

Moral turpitude is a broad term without a singular established definition, according to Cornell Law School, due to the amorphous concept of morality. However, courts have consistently described conduct that involves moral turpitude as “an act of baseness, vileness, or depravity in the private and social duties which a man owes to his fellow men, or to society in general, contrary to the accepted and customary rule of right and duty between man and man.”
