Pennsylvania State Police Unveils “PSP Tips” As Public’s New Crime-Fighting Tool

PSP Encourages The Public To Share Information To Help With Active Investigations, Cold Cases, And Missing Persons.

Harrisburg, PA - The Pennsylvania State Police (PSP) today 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," said Lieutenant Colonel George Bivens, Deputy Commissioner of Operations. "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.

Your tip could provide investigators with a long-awaited breakthrough that will finally bring closure and justice for the victim's 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: 



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,
