Station B-4, SP Cheshire, was established in mid-1920 to patrol the rural northwest corner of Massachusetts and provide police services to the residents and visitors of Northern Berkshire County. The station area is bordered by New York State to the west and Vermont to the North. The original Cheshire barracks was replaced in 1937 by a station in Pittsfield. In 1987 the Pittsfield Barracks was closed and replaced by the current station on Route 8 in Cheshire where it is again centrally located within its patrol area. The station area is comprised of 16 cities and towns encompassing approximately 450 square miles. In eight of these towns, the State Police function as the primary police department. The station also patrols five state highways and five state forests including Mt. Greylock State Reservation, the highest peak in the State. The station area is home to two large ski areas and spectacular foliage which impact the area with heavily traveled roads which require State Police resources.
