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.
