Eight state police investigators on the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting have been paid about $139,000 in overtime since Jan. 1, state records show.

Nearly half has gone to two investigators out of the Southbury barracks, who have both put in for more than 500 hours of overtime since the beginning of the year.

Sgt. Joshua Pattberg has been paid $33,637 in overtime since Jan. 1, state records show. Det. Daniel Jewiss, who works with Pattberg out of the Southbury barracks, has been paid $31,093. Each has surpassed his overtime totals for the last fiscal year when Pattberg was paid about $20,000 and Jewiss about $12,000, according to state records.

The overall number includes the four detectives assigned to the crime squad van, the sergeant who oversees the van and three detectives assigned to the Southbury barracks, the closest barracks to Newtown.

The third detective who works out of the Southbury barracks, Rachael Van Ness, has earned $17,366 in overtime pay, records show.

The four detectives who man the crime squad van have all been paid between $8,900 and $13,000, records show. Sgt. Jeffrey Covello, who oversees four detectives assigned to the van, has been paid about $12,840.

Pattberg and Jewiss have both traveled to conferences in the past few months to talk about the investigation, but state police spokesman Lt. J. Paul Vance said none of the overtime for any officers includes their attendance at conferences.
