UNITED STATES -- The 911 tapes from the Sandy Hook Elementary School Shooting in Newtown, Connecticut last year have been released to the public.

They were posted on a town website Wednesday.

Connecticut's State Attorney General argued to keep the recordings private, but a judge ruled otherwise.

Dispatchers are heard on the tapes speaking calmly with a janitor, a teacher, and others, assuring them that help was on the way.

They also asked about the welfare of the students and told those inside to take cover.

On December 14th, 2012, Adam Lanza, 20, shot and killed his mother inside their Newtown home before he went to the school.

Lanza shot and killed 26 people, including 20 children, before he took his own life.
