S.M.A.R.T. is a law enforcement mutual aid system operating in southeastern Wisconsin.  S.M.A.R.T. provides immediate extra law enforcement personnel and equipment at the scene of law enforcement emergences.  In the event of a large scale emergency the S.M.A.R.T. system may be activated when a law enforcement emergency has caused its law enforcement agency to exceed its own routine capabilities.

For the past several years the department has been awarded grant funding to strictly enforce traffic laws related to aggressive drivers and drivers who speed.  During these deployments the department deploys additional officers to areas such as Bluemound Rd, Barker Rd, and Capitol Dr to stop violators and issue citations to those drivers with the ultimate goal of reducing speed and aggressive driving.

Speeding

Our goal is to save lives. All drivers need to be alert, watch for speed limit signs and obey those signs, especially in school zones, in residential neighborhoods and on secondary roads.

Drivers need to remember that there is a reason for posted speed limits. The roadways are a dangerous place and the speed limits are designed to protect everyone – drivers, passengers, pedestrians – everyone!

Police Chaplain

The Police Chaplain Program is an innovative approach to meeting several needs in our community.  The Town of Brookfield Police Department has a volunteer Police Chaplain on staff.  Chaplain Mike Murphy works on a professional level by making himself available as a trained and caring chaplain who can assist in providing practical assistance to victims, responding to death notifications, serious injury or fatal motor vehicle accident scenes, serious high risk incidents, or any other serious police incidents involving high stress, including officer involved shootings and deaths. 

Chaplain Murphy also makes himself available to all members of the department to problem-solve difficult personal situations, family crisis problems, or professional problems.   Chaplain Murphy assists the police department in the performance of department ceremonial functions and is available to advise the department in matters of a religious nature involving the police department and performance of law enforcement duties in the community.

Chaplain Murphy is a member of the Waukesha County Police Chaplains Association and the International Conference of Police Chaplains.  Chaplain Murphy currently serves as an Associate Pastor at Elmbrook Church in Brookfield.

Southeast Wisconsin Multi-Jurisdictional Drunk Driving Task Force
