INDIANAPOLIS - McGruff the Crime Dog is back in Indianapolis as part of an effort to keep the city’s children safe.
In emergencies, officials with the Fraternal Order of Police said a child’s first interaction with an officer sometimes takes place during what is "the worst day of their life."
McGruff stands to peel away initial fears children may have when interacting with public safety officials.
The FOP hopes the presence of the friendly dog will help police departments connect with children and increase positive interactions surrounding public safety.
