Our ability to solve crimes and create a safer campus has a lot to do with our community members involvement. The Point Park Police Department has embraced new technologies that open us up to two-way communications anonymously with citizens who have tips or other information that will help us solve crimes and create a safer community.

When you submit a tip through any of the three options below, it is sent to a 3rd party tip service acting as a privacy buffer between you and the Point Park Police Department to preserve your identity and contact information. If you have a tip for the Point Park Police Department, please use any of the three options below to help provide important information on crimes or criminals that will help us to keep the Point Park University campus safe for everyone.

In case of emergency dial 412-392-3960.
