After an incredibly trying few weeks, Christmas will be an especially difficult time for Newtown, Connecticut — however, members of surrounding police forces are chipping in to make it a little easier for the town’s officers. 

 

“In Newtown, Connecticut, exhausted police officers received a rare gift — time off. Police from nearby communities are working in Newtown today to give the police the holiday with their families.”

 

Newtown police have reportedly been working non-stop since the shooting on December 14th. Rumors of the plan emerged on Twitter late last week and were confirmed by The Atlantic Wire.

 

 

 

“The plan has been kept on the down low for the past few days, since the various police departments are making the effort not for the press but as a gesture of solidarity with their fellow officers.”

 

 

And according to CBS Sports’ Matt Norlander, the officers have agreed to donate their overtime pay to Newtown and Sandy Hook Elementary School charities.

 

Don’t need to read this, just on screen: And all the overtime/holiday pay every CT cop makes for hauling it in to Newtown will be donated to Newtown/SHES charities. Holiday spirit!

 

Lieutenant Bob Kozlowsky of nearby Shelton, Connecticut told CNN his force was happy to help, saying: “it’s a police thing.”
