This course is presented with two points of view. The first is from the investigator perspective, those who investigate crimes committed by gang members. The second is from the “inside.” From the inside, the instructor seeks to pass on knowledge that will contribute to officer safety, unforeseen circumstances and will concurrently offer a unique perspective leading to more successful undercover operations when dealing with outlaw motorcycle gangs.
This training covers the history of the major outlaw motorcycle gangs (both nationally and internationally), the club culture, the hierarchy of clubs, recruitment of new members, effective recruitment and utilization of informants, L.E. misconceptions of OMG’s, women in the OMG world, OMG’s attempts to gather public support, the criminal activity of the OMG, weapons of the OMG and where they carry them, and OMGs vs. Police clubs.
