What is a Law Enforcement Motorcycle Club?
Law Enforcement Motorcycle clubs vary a great deal in their objectives and organizations. Mainstream motorcycle clubs or associations typically have elected officers and directors, annual dues, and a regular publication. They may also sponsor annual or more frequent "rallies" where members can socialize and get to know each other.
Law Enforcement Motorcycle Clubs, or LEMCs, sound like an oxymoron. But they are very much in existence, and growing by the day – motorcycle clubs that are run by the cops, for the cops, and of the cops. They call themselves traditional MCs, in that they have the same hierarchy and entry models that way other motorcycle clubs do, but most MCs, especially the outlaw MCs view LEMCs with distrust.
LEMCs members may be still serving or retired, but the fact remains, they are cops at heart, with a love for motorcycles and riding on the open road, sworn to uphold the law.
