Scruff® Costume

Picture of the Scruff Costume

Scruff® joins his uncle, McGruff the Crime Dog® as part of the nation-wide ‘Take a Bite out of Crime’ campaign. For 11 years, Scruff has been a part of the National Crime Prevention Council’s campaign against crime. With millions of dollars of PSAs in billboards, radio and television, Scruff is known to most children throughout the country. Now Scruff will be able to make live appearances with his uncle McGruff to help teach children about safety and crime prevention. The Scruff costume is designed to be worn by someone around 5’4” to enhance the childlike image. Scruff will greatly increase the effectiveness of the Take a Bite Out Of Crime campaign!
