Having become the financial capitol of the world, Tokyo is now a prime target for those that want to destabilize the world economy. To combat the rising terrorist tide, the Special Security Force is established. Tensions are high however, with both a vigilante anti-terrorist group called “Hunters” and the mysterious dr. Ichihara and his human enhancement project…
Both are ugly and violent OVAs that are ostensibly about the challenges law enforcement officers face. Both also come with rather... thespianly challenged dubs chock full of expletives. Angel Cop is more gritty and a whole lot less sexist while Mad Bull tries to be more tongue-in-cheek, but the rampant misogyny (that is anything but tongue-in-cheek) ruins most of the effect.
If you for some reason enjoyed either, check out the other. If you saw one and that it was trash but still want more, do yourself a favour and check out the other work.

Inferno Cop and Mad Bull are both shows that has a lead that is a violent sociopath that resorts to most problems he faces with by utilising violence. Said protagonists also carry a badge to go with their gun, which means that they're cops. Not very good ones, but that is pretty much the point. Violent confrontations abound and justice is best dispensed by itchy trigger fingers.
And they're not just violent, both anime are incredibly over the top, though Inferno Cop really pisses on Mad Bull in this department. Inferno Cop is also a lot more surreal, while Mad Bull is more of a schlocky parody (at least I hope it is).
So, want another, let's call it unorthodox, show about law enforcement, go for either of these.
