LPS and policing partners to monitor Hells Angels

Lethbridge Police will be joined by officers from law enforcement agencies across Alberta and Canada as members of the Hells Angels and supporters of the outlaw motorcycle gang attend the city this weekend.

LPS, alongside officers from the RCMP, ALERT Integrated Gang Enforcement Team, Calgary Police Service, Edmonton Police Service, Medicine Hat Police Service, Taber Police Service, Camrose Police Service and other Canadian police agencies, have joined in a coordinated response and will be visible throughout the city to monitor outlaw motorcycle gang members and their activities. 

Police are advising the public that members of a new Hells Angels chapter in Lethbridge, their support clubs and others, are holding a grand opening party and are anticipated to ride during various events over the weekend. Their presence is expected to be highly visible and police will assess any potential threat to public safety on a case-by-case basis. 

In addition, Section 69.1(1) of the Gaming, Liquor and Cannabis Act, enables the exclusion and removal of gang members from licensed establishments, and police will monitor potential attendance at applicable locations. 

“It has been well documented that many outlaw motorcycle gang members, their friends and associates, are involved in criminal activity,” said Acting Insp. Pete Christos. “We will be working with our policing partners to monitor their presence, deter illegal activity and maintain public safety through an overt police presence.”

It is expected that a large number of Hells Angels and their supporters will arrive in the city on July 12. The public is asked to be aware of the significant increase in motorcycle traffic and share the road safely.
