Escort Live permits reporting of moving police. I think where this would be most helpful to other drivers is on a highway where the officer is moving the same direction that you are travelling and with a report within a few minutes of the time you are arriving at that locale. The algorithm could set a much faster timer to remove these from the map sooner. Even with stationary officers, there is still a problem - they don't typically stay put for very long - either they get bored or they catch someone and then they're gone. It's still useful information.
Since there is no such option in Waze, I'm guessing that Wazers are simply reporting a visible police car, thus cluttering the map, rather than ignoring the moving target. I would think it better just not to report them since there are so many places where they might turn off.
