Antioch voters passed three measures that were intended to increase funding for new police officers. The Antioch Police Department failed to increase the size of the police force with that money. Instead, the department gave themselves exhorbitant pay raises. Enough to become the one of the highest paid police forces in the United States, and making theirs the 5th highest paying job in America. The five Antioch police lieutenants make an average of $337,000 annually, or $162.00 per hour. Meanwhile, Antioch has one of the highest homicide rates in the State of California.
