Police Department

COVID-19 Update From Police Chief Murray:

The safety of our community and employees is our highest priority. In consideration and cooperation of the Town of Chesterfield’s declaration of the State of Emergency, the Chesterfield Police Department is instituting operational changes and restrictions aimed at protecting the health and safety of our police officers as well as our community at large.

In accordance with the recommendations of the Centers for Disease Control and Massachusetts Department of Public Health, our officers are being encouraged to practice "social distancing". We are asking them to handle certain calls for service that don't require an immediate or in-person response over the telephone rather than responding to the scene. If they do respond to a residence or business for a call, we are asking them to conduct their conversations and interactions with people outside if it is safe and practical to do so. All emergency calls, crimes in progress, or incidents which require an immediate response will still be responded to and investigated by officers in-person. Don't hesitate to call us for help, as always.

We are taking additional measures within the police department building itself to best protect our employees. Our office hours, as of this time, are suspended.  Any requests for information or reports can be made by phone or by email to This email address is being protected from spambots.

For all Emergency calls, Call 911

For non-Emergency calls but require a timely response by an Officer call Dispatch at 413- 586-1508.

For routine requests, call the station phone at 413-296-4353.  Someone will call you back.

All Firearms licensing, as well as fingerprinting services, are suspended until further notice.  If you find yourself very close to the expiration date, ie, within two weeks, call and leave a message on the station phone or e mail and some arrangements will be made.

We will continue to evaluate conditions and adjust our response protocols as needed. We encourage our community to look to reputable sources of information on COVID-19 to make the best decisions for yourselves, your families, and your neighbors. All of the members of the Chesterfield Police Department are committed to keeping ourselves safe so we can do our best to keep you safe.

Any questions or concerns about these changes can be directed to Chief Edward Murray.


The Police Department responds to Emergency  9-1-1 and non-emergency calls for assistance.  The officers, Sergeant, and Chief maintain regular training, with some receiving specialized training.  The Department frequently works with the State Police,  Highland Ambulance EMS,  Chesterfield Fire Department, our mutual aid police departments, and our dispatchers at Northampton Control our Dispatch Center.

The Police Department has open office hours on Monday evenings from 7:00 - 9:00.
