That is the right way.  Or, your policy script can call exit().  Bro
in general is meant to run indefinitely.

Note that when you hit ^C, it will trap the signal and attempt to finish
processing any pending events.  If you hit ^C again, you'll get the
message "double signal" and it will immediately exit at that point.
