No word yet on reason that officer left task force

Is there any more news on why Josh Moulin, the former supervisor of the Southern Oregon High Tech Crimes Task Force, resigned as he was being investigated by law enforcement?

— Brian S., Medford

Jackson County District Attorney Mark Huddleston said that the Justice Department — the state Attorney General's Office — is handling the investigation into Moulin's tenure with the task force.

The Justice Department has not made a ruling, or at least informed local authorities that it has done so, Huddleston said.

The Justice Department is handling the investigation because Moulin had worked closely with Jackson County prosecutors on several past cases.

Moulin retired from the task force, and his position with the Central Point Police Department, earlier this summer.

Moulin is under investigation for possible wrongdoing, but authorities have not commented on the case against him.

Moulin helped form the task force in 2005.

Over the years, the operation has grown to include officers from other agencies, including Medford, Grants Pass, Ashland, Klamath Falls and Central Point police departments, the FBI, U.S. Department of Homeland Security and the Jackson County District Attorney's Office.

It is the only non-federal law enforcement agency in the U.S. that solely focuses on digital forensics and is accredited by the American Society of Crime Laboratory Directors.
