Presenting our presence

The other day I was outside with my friend, and a bunch of police cars drove down the road with their lights going. I said… “Oh! Look! It’s like a police escort” but my friend looked at the police cars and said… “I don’t think so, unless there’s a car in the middle…” and as we watched, there wasn’t a car in the middle. Confused, I looked at her, and she responded. “I heard that they apparently do this to show their presence to the people of NYC.”
Why? Are people suddenly worried that the NYPD is leaving the city? Who made that great decision? I can see them doing something like that in crime-heavy areas… but not where I work… which is like tourist central…
