    Newtown's police chief says his department will review its response to the shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School once the complete state police report on the massacre is released.

    State police are currently in the process of redacting personal information from the thousands of pages in their evidence file so that they can be released publicly. The Connecticut Division of Criminal Justice said the redactions were expected to be completed by the anniversary of the Dec. 14 shooting.

    Newtown Police Chief Michael Kehoe told The News-Times that his department's review will look at everyone's actions. Such reviews of major incidents help police departments improve response and planning.

    Kehoe told the newspaper a summary report released this week showed his officers acted properly. He was not available for comment Wednesday.
