In the year 2808, criminals are no longer just wasting space in prison cells. The Cyber Police have turned to using these “patrons” by giving them a choice. Their sentence, or to work with them to catch other criminals and knock some years off their sentence. But getting off easy isn't, as each criminal is fitted with booby trapped collar that operates on a 24 hour cycle, stopped ONLY if they capture their intended targets. As time runs out on each case, someone's head must roll... the target's, or their own!
Cyber City Oedo is about criminals upholding the law in the future, while AD Police Files is about the police doing their jobs; both have good stories and action. AD Police Files gives rise to a few more recommendations as well (Bubblegum Crash, Crisis etc) but, being a bloke, AD Police is the one to go for - forget about 'feelings', we're here for the action.

Both tell a somewhat similar tale, but A.D. Police Files deals more in the action side of things rather than the psychological side. Either way you'll have your fill with either anime.
