New rifles, storage to be bought by Brookfield Police

New rifles and storage will be purchased by the Brookfield Police Department. Chief John Puglisi says the department’s Firearms Training Group is concerned over the department’s issued weapons.  The Board of Selectmen approved an appropriation of $141,025 from the Police Outside Services Fund for the replacements. Puglisi says the current  25 rifles lack needed upgrades including optics, lights and sound suppressors.  The funding will buy more storage lockers to accommodate 37 new firearms with accessories, which are also being funded in the request.  Accessories will consist of a rifle optic, flashlight, sound suppressor, muzzle device, spare magazines, and sling.  The current rifles are about 18 years old.  There are 32 in service, 7 of which are not owned by the Department, but are on loan from the Federal 1033 Program.  The appropriation will also cover 7 in-vehicle rifle locks to be upgraded to current standards.
