H-1 is the Government Center Barracks which is located in the heart of government in downtown Boston. This barracks is unique in that it is the smallest State Police barracks in Massachusetts. Their primary function is patrolling hallways of the state's governmental buildings along with a limited amount of roadways throughout the Government Center area. The mission of the State Police Government Center is to provide a safe and secure working environment for all our elected officials, their constituents, employees and visitors. To ensure this, we have entered a unique partnership, in conjunction with the Department of Conservation & Recreation Park Rangers and the Bureau of State Office Buildings, to provide security for the safety of all persons utilizing this historical government center. In addition, H-1 personnel are responsible for crime reporting and investigations of any criminal acts that occur in many of the State Courts and dozens of other State owned or leased properties scattered throughout the City of Boston.
