ROCK SPRINGS, Wyoming — Rock Springs police are getting training to deal with outlaw motorcycle gangs.

The Rock Springs Rocket-Miner reports (http://tinyurl.com/msc9qje ) Police Chief Mike Lowell arranged two days of training this week for his officers and others across the state.

Steve Cook of the Heartland Training Institute in Kansas City, Missouri, led the training.

Lowell says the number of outlaw gang members is increasing in Wyoming. He says Rock Springs doesn't have any gang headquarters but some cities have groups that support gangs.

He says he wants to make sure his officers know the right way to handle gangs.

Lowell says some motorcycle clubs don't break laws but outlaw motorcycle gangs are defined by involvement in crime.
