215 Laurel Street, Route 20
Lee, MA 01238
Station B-1, SP Lee, was established in 1922 as Troop B's first sub-station receiving it's designation of B-1. The present station built in 1931 on Route 20 replaced a barn in East Lee which housed horses on the ground level and Troopers in the loft above. The station is responsible for the southwest corner of Massachusetts providing police services to residents and visitors of southern Berkshire County. The station area is bordered on the west by New York State and to the south by Connecticut. The 16 towns in the station area comprise 550 square miles with 125 miles of state highway. In seven of these towns, the State Police act as the primary police department. There are 31,500 acres of state forests and parks within the Station's area and nearly 15,000 acres of the Appalachian Trail. The nature and demographics of the area require a more rural than highway patrol.
