Frequently Asked Questions

Q. When should I call 911?

9-1-1 lines are designated for emergency calls, such as reporting a crime in progress, reporting a fire, or requesting an ambulance.  Call the dispatch at 413-625-8200 or the business office at 413-628-4441x1 for non-emergency purposes.  More information on 9-1-1.

Q. Who should I call about a loose or problem dog, or a problem animal such as a sick raccoon or dead bird?

A. You should call Warren Kirkpatrick, the Ashfield Animal Control Officer, at (413) 628-3811.

Q. Can the police department check my home or business while I am away on vacation?

A. Yes. This is a special service provided by your police department. Please fill out our online form or pick one up and drop it off at the police station before you leave. Officers on patrol will randomly check on the security of your home while you are away.

Q. If on returning home I find my door open, should I go inside?

A. NEVER go into a building where you suspect a burglary may be in progress. Go to a neighbor's house and call the police. If you arrive home and find a broken window, an alarm sounding, or another indication of a break-in, DO NOT GO IN. You do not want to encounter an intruder, or damage any evidence such as fingerprints or footprints.

Q. I need to apply for or renew my pistol permit. How do I do this?

A. Contact the police department at our main number, or call Auxiliary Officer Lesure at 413-628-3200 to schedule an appointment. Firearms forms are available under "Resources" on this website.

Q. I need a copy of a police report. How do I obtain one?

A. The police department provides a request form, available at the police department, that is submitted to the Chief of Police in order to request a copy of a police report. By state law, the police department has ten (10) days to respond to a request for a copy of records. Copies are $.20 per page for photocopies. Records will not be released until any and all fees are paid. Certain records are confidential per state law and may only be released to authorized persons.

Q. Are the Ashfield Police available to speak to my business or social group?

Yes, the Ashfield Police Department has a very strong, committed community policing philosophy. We would be happy to provide a speaker to come out and talk to your group about specific or general law enforcement related topics. Please call Chief Droney for more information.
