Canada - Top cop says Surrey residents will help police "make it a very daunting task for the Hells Angels, or any other organized crime group, to flourish here."~~
Surrey's top cop says a new chapter of the Hells Angels is not welcome in his city.
Supt. Bill Fordy reacted Friday to news revealed in the Vancouver Sun that the notorious biker gang was opening a new chapter in Surrey called "West Point" - a splinter group from its White Rock chapter.
"Outlaw Motorcycle gangs are not welcome here or anywhere else. If the Hells Angels expect to set up a clubhouse in Surrey, I am serving them notice right here and now that they are not welcome. I will use every lawful means at my disposal to ensure they understand that," Fordy said.
He said he has already spoken to the Combined Forces Special Enforcement Unit, City of Surrey and other law enforcement agencies and government partners to strategize about how to respond to the Hells Angels expansion plans.
"Surrey RCMP is well positioned with a number of already successful strategies, protocols, and practices in place to address organized crime groups," Fordy said.
"With the help of our municipal, provincial, and federal partners the City of Surrey will be a very unwelcome atmosphere for any organized crime group to ply their criminal enterprise."
Fordy said Surrey residents will also help police "make it a very daunting task for the Hells Angels, or any other organized crime group, to flourish here."
