The Angel City Police Department (ACPD) is the primary law enforcement agency in Angel City. Employing just over 9,000 officers, the ACPD is divided into five precinct, roughly coinciding with the five civic districts: North, South, East, Northern Peninsula, and Southern Peninsula (the islands in Angel Bay fall under the jurisdiction of the United States Coast Guard).
The Office of the Commissioner of Police, located in Downtown Angel City, oversees all ACPD operations. Home to this office and the ACPD headquarters is the Strom Center, which sits across the street from City Hall.
The five ACPD precincts conform to the topography of Angel City. They are:
- Precinct North covers the region directly north of Angel Bay.
- Precinct South covers the region directly south of Angel Bay.
- Precinct East covers the region directly east of Anegl Bay, including CalSci and the International Quarter.
- The Northern Peninsula Precinct includes the Angel Alps, Studio City, Eleusis Square, Halo Beach, West Coast College, and the Arts District.
- The Southern Peninsula Precinct includes Downtown Angel City and the Warehouse District.
