McGruff House® and McGruff Truck® Programs Close

The world has changed significantly in those 30 years

McGruff House® and McGruff Truck® Programs Close
In February 2012, the National Crime Prevention Council, the Utah Council on Crime Prevention, and the McGruff House Network announced the end of the McGruff House® and McGruff Truck® programs after a 30-year successful run.  The world has changed significantly in those 30 years, and with children carrying personal cell phones and other electronic devices, changing social and neighborhood dynamics, new business models, and ever-tightening budgets, the partner organizations could no longer sustain the program.  Program coordinators have been notified and instructed to collect and destroy all signs and program materials.  If you have questions about closing down your program, please contact us.

The national partners would like to thank the volunteers who have helped to make children across the country safer.  McGruff can still be incorporated into your other crime prevention programs and NCPC has many other programs that communities can implement to prevent crime.
