SPETSNAZ is a Law Enforcement Motorcycle Club which consisted of current and retired first responders, military professionals and like- minded individuals, who enjoy riding motorcycles and share high moral and ethical values, trust, and dedication.



OUR NAME


“Spetsnaz» (Special Purposes) is the name for the ex-USSR special police and military task force trained to participate in special operations. With their highest level of professional, moral, psychological, ideological, physical, and combat training, they are the elite of all law enforcement agencies and military branches.

Every member of the Club has served or is currently serving in the SWAT, FSB «Alpha» Group, SOBR MVD, Russian Internal Troops, Military Special Forces, or Police force.



OUR PURPOSE


We vow to support the families of fallen policemen and veterans, to make sure that their heroic deeds are not forgotten and their families are never in need, to make sure that the children know that their loved ones have given their lives for a noble cause.



OUR ORIGINS


Our club is the first Russian-speaking law enforcement motorcycle club in the US which was founded by the law enforcement officers and military professionals from the US and ex-USSR.


What makes SPETSNAZ LE MC stand out from the crowd is the fact that most of its members emigrated from the former USSR. We all have a police and/or military background in the countries of the ex-Soviet Union. Some of us still maintain an active status as police officers in the US, while others are long-retired from both law enforcement and the military.


We have all become Americans and love this country and its freedom. We feel that one of the best ways to enjoy this freedom is to be on a motorcycle surrounded by your closest friends with an endless road ahead.



OUR INSIGNIA AND COLORS


The Shield and the Sword symbolize our readiness to protect those who cannot protect themselves. We are ready to help in word and in deed. Plus, this symbol has been used by the USSR’s special forces and police for ages.


Recently, we have changed our main patch from the old Russian two-headed eagle to a star covered by a thin blue line. The background of the patch remains the same; it retains the shield and the sword (to serve and protect). A lot of people already know what the thin blue line means. We are now proudly wearing it on our hearts. We also changed the patch due to the growing interest in our Club among bikers from Ukraine, Latvia, and other post-USSR countries. We understand that the Russian eagle does not fully represent the brotherhood we have in our Club, so the change we made was necessary.


SPETSNAZ LE MC is not a 1%er motorcycle club and is not associated with any. We are not territorial. We wear bottom rockers to indicate which Chapter or State we belong to. We do not interfere with the business of any other motorcycle clubs. We respect their rights and expect the same in return. We value the many friendships we have made with other clubs and hope they do the same.


We are a family-oriented motorcycle club, with members united in their support for all law enforcement officers, military veterans and their families.


We are a non-profit organization and are trying to attend as many community fundraising events as possible.
