That's been suggests before and not something I think can be easily done, but I've not tried this, so I'm not totally confident. The only way to tap "not there" is to have the police "ahead of you" on your route. So if they were running Waze, they'd have to be moving to tap Not There. They could have some coordination going on with someone else doing it for them, but I doubt they are going through that amount of effort.

I've sometimes had them disappear as I approached. However, my guess was that someone else had already marked them as "Not there"... whether or not it was true. (Could be the police are using Waze and marking themselves as "Not There"... in order to keep their presence somewhat of a surprise.)

Post your hardware/OS info. I've never personally seen this happen. I see the hazard/police notification near .6 miles or so I think.

Actually, this happens all the time. Yes, the notification shows up around .6 miles, but it disappears the instant you reach the zero mark; thus, the OP's complaint that "not there" can't be selected once you know for sure whether or not the police are actually there.

Hmm, interesting. I usually get the countdown after I reach the zero mark. I haven't used waze on my Casio C771 recently but thought I used to get the countdown on it as well. I wonder why yours disappear the instant you reach the zero mark and mine don't. I'll have to try the Casio and see what happens here.
