Police officers from all around Connecticut agreed to work on Christmas to give  Newtown, Connecticut officers the day off.

Newtown’s officers have been working non-stop since the Dec. 14 mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary, reports CNN.

Lt. Bob Kozlowsky, who works with the police department in Shelton, Connecticut, told CNN: "When something like this happens, it’s a police thing. We’ll always try to help out neighboring towns. Any time there’s a tragedy, we’ll try our best to lend a helping hand."

Many of the police officers filling in for Newtown's force have also agreed to donate their overtime pay to local charities or work for free.

Newtown police spokesperson Sgt. Steve Santucci said: “They’ve been actually non-stop with their aid. It’s pretty amazing.”
