防犯カメラに写った少年とみられる複数の人物について特定を急いでいます。

I think the first part (防犯カメラに写った少年とみられる) means: "The alleged boy believed to be caught on the security camera" however I am stumped on the second part. (複数の人物について特定を急いでいます。).
My attempt is: "We'll rush the specifics concerning several people" (?) (I thought they were only talking about one boy?) Am I way off?

I am so confused! Please help me with this.

Thank you!

All of your first part is a clause which modifies 複数の人物

(Police) are working to quickly determine the identities of several people, believed to be youths, who appeared on the security camera video.

Or something like that.
