Special Supervision Unit
The Special Supervision Unit is designed to supervise moderate to high risk juvenile offenders who, through assessment, have been identified as either members of a gang or at risk for joining a gang.  The S.S.U. utilizes a comprehensive supervision model which includes: suppression of gang related behaviors, prevention for those at risk of joining a gang and intervention for those involved in the gang lifestyle.
