Are ACCPD officers required to identify themselves?

Yes.  Unless it would jeopardize an investigation or hinder a police function, ACCPD Directive 1.04.03 (M) requires officers, non-sworn employees, and volunteers who are engaged in Department-related activities to identify themselves when asked by a citizen.  Depending on their specific assignment, the employee may provide their name, badge number, or Department-issued photo identification.  A business card is also an appropriate means to provide identifying information.  Officers who are operating in an undercover capacity or whose specific assignment, duty, investigation, or personal safety would be compromised are not required to identify themselves.
