I received word from a professional organization I am a member of that they have launched a national campaign on social media for the public to see retro ads featuring McGruff the Crime Dog and to share memories and personal stories about McGruff the Crime Dog. McGruff been a part of our social fabric and delighted children for 35 years (that’s a lot in dog years).
You are invited by the National Crime Prevention Council to share your McGruff memories on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram and use the hashtag #myMcGruff — have fun and enjoy a trip down memory lane to honor McGruff. The NCPC’s web site is www.ncpc.org if you would like to get crime prevention tips on a multitude of subjects.
