Victoria Police Have Made A HUGE Announcement About APEX

Victoria is adding three new police squads to its anti-gangs division to fight outlaw motorcycle and Middle Eastern crime gangs.

The state has been dealing with a wave of shootings linked to the ice trade, so 20 new officers will join the team investigating gang crime.

"Both emerging gangs and active criminal networks - including motorcycle gangs - will be investigated, disrupted and held to account for their crimes," Police Minister Lisa Neville said on Tuesday.

Victoria has been at the forefront of a wave of crime coming from young gangs over the past year, with one being labelled as the ‘Apex gang’ and it looks like the Police will now deal with the problem.
