State Police unveil ‘PSP Tips,’ a new crime-fighting tool

Pennsylvania State Police has unveiled “PSP Tips” a new way for the public to share information related to active investigations, cold-cases, the apprehension of wanted persons or locating missing persons.

“Assistance from the public is often vital to solving crimes or locating missing or wanted individuals,” Lt. Col. George Bivens, deputy commissioner of operations said recently. “The social media platforms, the toll-free number and the online tip form are all easy ways to send us information that may solve a case or get a dangerous individual off the streets.”

PSP Tips includes information on nearly 100 cold case homicides, missing persons and other unsolved crimes.

New cases will be added frequently.

Featured cases include the 1973 homicide of an 8-year-old girl in Greene County, the unsolved killing in 1977 of a high school junior in Blair County, the 1981 disappearance of a Lackawanna County teenager and the search for the children of Susan Reinert, a Montgomery County teacher found murdered near Harrisburg in 1979.

Tips could provide investigators with a long-awaited breakthrough to finally bring closure and justice for the victims’ families.

All information submitted to PSP Tips can be provided anonymously, if desired.

All cases in which PSP requests public assistance can be viewed at the following social media sites: Facebook.com/PSPTips and twitter.com/PSP_TIPS.

Each site provides a toll-free phone number, 1-800-4PA-TIPS (1-800-472-8477) and a link to an online tip submission form, p3tips.com/tipform.aspx?ID=107.
