The Kern Valley State Prison (KVSP) Institutional Gang Investigation (IGI) unit represented the institution in support of this year’s National Night Out event in Delano.

National Night Out is an annual community-building campaign that promotes police-community partnerships and neighborhood camaraderie to make our neighborhoods safer, more caring places to live. National Night Out enhances the relationship between neighbors and law enforcement while bringing back a true sense of community. Furthermore, it provides a great opportunity to bring police and neighbors together under positive circumstances, according to organizers.
