About McGruff SafeGuard
McGruff SafeGuard is a easy-to-use service designed to help parents manage their kids' increasingly dangerous online activity. The service intelligently monitors ALL internet activity for potential danger.
The service allows parents to conveniently review their kids' activities on a secure website, or to be notified of potentially dangerous situations via cell phone and email alerts.
McGruff SafeGuard alerts parents to dangerous behavior, such as Internet predators, sexual abuse, drug use, or criminal activity, and provides helpful advice to parents on how to deal with certain issues.
McGruff SafeGuard is also the first and only service to electronically connect parents with law enforcement in their common battle against Internet sexual predators.
McGruff SafeGuard is a partnership between the National Crime Prevention Council (NCPC) and ParentsOnPatrol (POP).
About NCPC and McGruff the Crime Dog®
The National Crime Prevention Council (NCPC) is a private, nonprofit organization whose primary mission is to be the nation's leader in helping people keep themselves, their families, and their communities safe from crime. NCPC manages public service advertising under the National Citizens' Crime Prevention Campaign — symbolized by McGruff the Crime Dog® and his "Take A Bite Out Of Crime®" slogan — and acts as secretariat for the Crime Prevention Coalition of America, more than 400 national, federal, state, and local organizations representing thousands of constituents who are committed to preventing crime. NCPC is funded through a variety of government agencies, corporate and private foundations, and donations from private individuals.
Back in 1980, a dog in a rumpled trench coat said, "You don't know me yet. But you will." Since then, McGruff the Crime Dog has become world famous for his advice on how to stop crime before it happens. Over the years, he has taught millions of people that the police can't fight crime alone — crime prevention is everybody's business and everyone can help "Take A Bite Out Of Crime."
Based in Miami, FL, ParentsOnPatrol develops advanced technology designed to help parents manage their kids' increasingly dangerous online activities. The company is operated by technology experts and former law enforcement officers.
