SALT LAKE CITY — A hacking collective known as Anonymous broke into the Salt lake City Police Department website Tuesday evening, and was apparently able to access the personal information of those who had registered with the site.

That information includes "phone numbers, addresses, email addresses, other personal information, and details about suspicious activity from a variety of sources," including citizen complaints regarding drug crimes.

Wednesday, an email was sent out to users of the site urging them to change their email passwords immediately because the group may have access to it as a result of the hack. The SLCPD website is still currently down.
