Consolidate SWAT team will include Muskego and New Berlin

March 13, 2013

Both Muskego and New Berlin approved joining a consolidated SWAT team that would save their police departments both money and manpower.

The Suburban Critical Incident Team would be a consolidation of tactical personnel and resources from Muskego, New Berlin, Brookfield, Delafield, Mukwonago, Pewaukee, Hartland and Chenequa, if all the other jurisdictions approve.

Both Muskego and New Berlin have their own SWAT teams and the Lakes Area Critical Incident Team covered the rest of the communities, except for the village of Mukwonago.

Training has gotten increasingly expensive with advances in technology. The cost has become difficult for one department to afford, officials say.
