McGruff the Crime Dog

I'm McGruff the Crime Dog - world famous for my advice on how to stop crime before it happens and for my great sense of humor. But seriously, my job is to help people, especially kids, learn how to be safe and make their neighborhood safer.

Something else you should know about me is that I go all over the country to talk to people about how they can take a bite out of crime.

I love to visit the beautiful Brainerd Lakes Area throughout the year. You might see me if:
  • You take a tour of the Brainerd Police Department
  • You attend the Annual Halloween Safety Event at the Brainerd Police Department
  • You attend the Brainerd Fire Department's Annual Open House
  • You attend a Brainerd Elementary School
  • You attend a National Night Out event in one our neighborhoods
So if you see me in your town, come on up and say hi. You can recognize me by my tan trench coat - I never go anywhere without it.
Take a Bite Out of Crime
This here is my nephew Scruff. He helps me show kids how they can stay safe. Scruff's a good pup but sometimes gets himself into a bit of trouble. Lucky for him he's got a good memory - eventually he remembers the right thing to do to get out of trouble.
