Priority Marketing Partners With Law Enforcement to Help Solve Cold Cases
In an effort to help with difficult-to-solve murder and missing person crimes, Priority Marketing has teamed up with Florida and Georgia law enforcement agencies to produce Cold Case Playing Cards that are distributed in prisons and probation offices. The Cold Case Playing Cards can be used as a traditional deck of playing cards, but they are unique because each card in the deck features photos and information on unsolved homicide and missing person cases in these jurisdictions, along with the applicable toll-free telephone number for reporting tips. The goal is to get the cards into the hands of people who may have information on these unsolved cases. Rewards are offered for tips in some cases. According to the Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE), two cases in its jurisdiction have been solved since 2005 as a result of leads generated from the cards. In fact, the program has been so successful, the FDLE has distributed its third edition of Cold Case Playing Cards to inmates at 67 county jails and 156 probation offices. Florida’s Cold Case Playing Cards are a collaborative effort between the FDLE, Florida Attorney General’s Office, Florida Police Chiefs Association, Florida Association of Crime Stoppers, Florida Department of Corrections and the Florida Sheriffs Association. They are also available to the public for purchase at $16 per deck, including shipping and handling, at www.priorityplayingcards.com. Discounted rates are available on orders of multiple quantities. In Fulton County, Georgia, where there are currently 1,200 unsolved murder cases, 5,000 Cold Case Playing Cards decks are circulating the prison system. The Fulton County Cold Case squad, which initiated the program in Georgia, has stated it hopes to expand the effort statewide.
