Andrew Blankstein reports:

Personal information about more than two dozen members of the Los Angeles Police Department’s command staff was anonymously posted on a website, officials said Wednesday.

The LAPD is investigating who may be behind the site, which listed officers’ property records, campaign contributions, biographical information and, in a few cases, the names of children and other family members.

In the last few months, hackers have tried to break into the servers of several public agencies including the LAPD, the Fullerton Police Department and the Bay Area Rapid Transit system.

Department officials said it appeared that the information was gleaned from public records, and there was no evidence that the LAPD’s computer records had been breached.
