There are now 251 recorded OMCG members, compared with 305 on 6 August 2015. “The legislation has resulted in a substantially more hostile environment for OMCGs to operate in and has led to the destabilisation and disruption of OMCG activities,” Detective Chief Inspector Fitzgerald said. The laws also proscribe bikie clubrooms where gang members are banned from gathering. “All identified OMCG clubrooms were vacated as a direct result of being declared

‘proscribed places’ under the legislation. SAPOL continues to investigate new premises being used as clubrooms as information is received,” Detective Chief Inspector Fitzgerald said. “The reduced ability of OMCG members and associates to meet at established clubhouses, gather in public, and take part in runs or other events is likely to destabilise these groups, reduce loyalty and impact the effectiveness of them as criminal enterprises.”
