Police investigated Saturday the online posting with a hacker category of the private information of hundreds of police officers and federal agents stolen from websites.

The records included telephone numbers and home addresses, emails and companies’ names.
The FBI National Academy Associates said in a statement that the data, late Thursday published, appears to emerge from the sites of three chapters of the nonprofit, which claims members nationwide and in 174 nations.
It said it worked to explore.
The team said its database was untouched. It stated the three affected chapters were utilizing third-party applications but it was”too premature to ascertain whether this influenced the violation “
The AP is not identifying the hackers’ web site. A Twitter account says the group is based in Ukraine.
The news website TechCrunch first reported the hack.
