Police device

Hi there! In American action movies, when the police requests someone in the house to open the door, if he doesn't open the door, the police use a device to break the door. What do you guys call the long black device that the policeman holds with two hands in the following link?

Your answers will be highly appreciated.

Apparently the British police call it an Enforcer.
I would call it a battering ram.
