A long time Brookfield Police Officer is set to retire after more than 4 decades on the job.  Officer Gary Gramling worked his final shift yesterday though his retirement takes effect Monday.  The department noted his dedication to the town, saying he used only one sick day throughout his entire career. 

Gramling will continue to serve as Chief of Candlewood Company of the Brookfield Volunteer Fire Department and as a Deputy Fire Marshal for the town. 

Gramling began his career with the Brookfield Police Department in 1979 as a Civilian Dispatcher.  He became an officer a few months later and in 1992 took on the role of Youth Officer, a position he has held ever since.  Gramling has served the Department as First Aid Instructor, a Peer Officer, our representative on Brookfield Cares, serves on the regional Multi-Disciplinary Investigation Team, and numerous roles in the former PBA and Police Officer’s Union, including serving as its long-time President.

He is the recipient of numerous departmental awards for exemplary police service involving bravery, courage, compassion and good judgement.
