The Kern Valley State Prison (KVSP) Honor Guard represented the institution in support of this year’s National Night Out event in Delano.

The event 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.

KVSP staff generously donated school supplies which the Honor Guard distributed to the local youth while getting to know those in their community better.
