CALDWELL — The misconduct of current and former officers working for the Caldwell Police Department’s Street Crimes Unit has been the subject of an FBI investigation, according to six sources familiar with the matter.

The police misconduct being investigated appears to center on alleged sexual relations that one officer had while on duty, as well as the treatment of suspects in alleged drug crimes, sources have said. It involves criminal and civil components, two sources said. The investigation may also be looking at employees who were knowledgeable about those alleged incidents, a retired law enforcement officer said.
