The Massachusetts State Police are a full service agency, responsible for patrolling state highways, roads, parks, and reservations, as well as deploying a wide range of investigative, forensic, and tactical units. MSP also operates the Commonwealth Fusion Center and its forensic laboratory system. We also operate several communications centers, which intake cell phone and land ine calls, and are responsible for issuing AMBERAlerts for missing or abducted children in Massachusetts. The department is comprised of more than 2,000 sworn personnel and several hundred civilians.
State Police General Headquarters is located in Framingham. We operate 39 barracks from Nantucket to Chesire and numerous locations in between, and field many investigative units, including statewide units and others attached to public prosecutors’ offices.
