McGruff the Crime Dog

McGruff the Crime Dog is a cartoon bloodhound from the National Crime Prevention Council for use by American police in building crime awareness among children. UPD's McGruff is available to local elementary schools in the extended campus community and on-campus, as requested.

Additionally, you can meet McGruff at SJSU's annual Take Our Daughters And Sons To Work Day.  This program provides an interactive and fun environment for SJSU employees' children to:

  • Show them the value of their education.
  • Help them discover the power and possibilities associated with a balanced work and family life.
  • Provide them an opportunity to share how they envision the future and begin steps toward their end goals.

For more information, contact UPD at 408-924-2185 and/or see Family Fun.
