The Outlaw Motor Cycle Gang (OMCG) Special Operation brings together all Australian law enforcement, as well as government agencies to disrupt, dismantle or neutralise OMCGs nationally.
Through this special operation we work in partnership with key stakeholders to:
- support target development and investigations by law enforcement agencies into OMCGs
- reduce the threat posed by OMCGs
- work with law enforcement, government and industry partners to build an awareness of threats and vulnerabilities and contribute to appropriate legislative and policy responses.
The use of our agency’s coercive powers has been effective in collecting information and intelligence to examine structures and links fundamental to organised criminal activity. This has helped identify and take action against a range of OMCG criminal enterprises, which have proved highly resilient to traditional law enforcement methods.
OMCGs continue to pose a significant threat to the Australian community. To reduce that threat, we need focused and innovative strategies to complement traditional police methods of investigations. In particular, the ongoing appropriate use of our agency’s powers provides a mechanism for law enforcement agencies to optimise disruption of OMCGs posing the highest risk to the Australian community.
