Brookfield Police have a new tool in their arsenal. Officers, at times, are tasked with the problem of having to force entry into a residence or a vehicle in situations where a person has become injured or incapacitated, and is in need of immediate live saving intervention.
Every Brookfield patrol vehicle will now be equipped with a lifesaving wrecking bar. This was made possible through a donation of ten multipurpose demolition/wrecking bars by Ring's End Bethel.

Brookfield Police Sergeant Pennoyer saw the need for a compact, yet versatile, forcible entry tool and approached Brookfield firefighter Richard Clyne, who works at Ring's End. The store's manager, Rob Campbell Jr., agreed to donate one unit for each patrol vehicle. The wrecking bars are made of drop forged steel by Stanley Tools for construction demolition.
