While ACT Police would not say how many officers would be on the streets for the meeting, members of the Taskforce Nemesis, traffic, general duties and specialist response teams were given a watching brief for the weekend.

A police spokeswoman said they would be monitoring for any intimidating, anti-social or illegal activity, and ensuring Rebels members were compliant with road transport laws.

She said police were not expecting any disruptions to traffic over the weekend, but people may see small groups of Rebels "riding around the Capital over the weekend".
