McGruff the Crime Dog is cartoon bloodhound that was created for the National Crime Prevention Council for use by American police in building crime awareness among children. McGruff debuted in July 1980 and his motto was, “Take a bite out of crime.” McGruff was used in commercials, songs, educational videos and booklets, covering topics on drugs, bullying, safety and the importance of staying in school. The image and text that is on the button is the official logo.
