WEST HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) - Police have opened an investigation after a Connecticut town’s website was hacked Thursday morning.

Police say the West Hartford town website has been taken offline as the Information Technology Department works to restore it.

The Connecticut Intelligence Center is working with police to investigate the hack. Center officials say the hack targeted several government websites and was as far reaching as California.

Officials say no user information is at risk and no town networks were affected.

The IT Department hopes to have the website restored by Friday.
