Gang Intervention and Suppression Team (GIST)

The Gang Intervention and Suppression Team (G.I.S.T.) focuses on minors involved in criminal street gangs throughout Kern County. Once they are over age 19 they are supervised by the High Risk Unit at Adult Probation. With community safety as a top priority, G.I.S.T. officers provide intense supervision, expert Court testimony, searches and surveillance, and community presentations.
