Bikie gangs enforce a strict code of silence, treat women as property and use a secret underworld language, a court dossier reveals.

A 400-page document prepared by police for court proceedings over an explosive Hunter Valley turf war between the Nomads and Finks provides a rare and detailed insight into gang life.

It reveals how bikies claim 'ownership' over their wives and girlfriends who can never become gang members themselves.

Some are even 'branded like dogs' such as the girlfriend of a Coffin Cheaters gang member whose back bears a tattoo reading: 'The Property of Mark Hinchcliff'. 

One girlfriend of a Life and Death gang member wears a jacket reading: 'Property of Steve'.

'It is my experience that women are generally treated as secondary to the organisation, members and motorcycles,' Detective Sergeant Groenewegen writes in the report.

There is a hierarchy among the bikie women, with an Old Lady - a wife - at the top and strict rules on when a woman can be courted after finishing a relationship with a gang member and ceasing to be 'off limits'.

The report details a rife culture of domestic violence, which often goes unreported as women are too scared to speak out.

It reads: 'It is acceptable to assault or otherwise control women who are of secondary concern and status.' 

The document, seen by The Daily Telegraph, also details how a 'code of silence' makes shootings, murders and violent assaults extremely difficult for police to solve as members fear punishment and dishonour for talking to detectives.

It then reveals how bikies use a secret underworld language when discussing illicit activities.
