Massachusetts State Troopers Monument

Small monument at the Massachusetts State Police General Headquarters

The Massachusetts State Police General Headquarters campus (GHQ) is located just off of Route 9 in Framingham. At the Police Headquarters is a small memorial to the Massachusetts State Troopers who have fallen in the line of duty.

State Memorial

Four Things I Learned

  • Memorial was placed in 1960. They have been 21 Massachusetts State Troopers who have died since 1960.
  • I wasn't able to find any information about the memorial or why it was placed at the location. There don't appear to be any special ceremony around the memorial.
  • There are no names around the memorial, the memorial in Boston has the Trooper's names.
  • Sergeant James H. Marshal was the only trooper to die in 1960. Prior to that, it was Patrolman Wallace E. Mathews who died on April 23, 1953.
