The LAPD had a standard system of operations as it aimed to protect the city, and sometimes the world, from both domestic and galactic threats. Officers patrolled and surveilled the entire city constantly every day to ensure city rules and regulations were followed and the citizens were secure. Officers use personalized spinners to hover around the city grounds in search of potential threats or strange activities.
Blade Runner division
The LAPD notably housed and hired Blade Runners to retire defected or returning replicants from Off-world colonies. Blade Runners that worked for the LAPD operated differently than LAPD detectives or officers, working on an as-needed basis. When the LAPD received word of a defected replicant, their hired Blade Runners were called in to track down the replicants and retire them as ordered.
