Default Officers home. Come on escort

This is really in appropriate to show a police office home address as a POI

Escort Live uses the Google Maps API, as confirmed in your screen shot with the Google logo on the bottom left.

I think your question is better directed at Google. BTW, almost anyone can create these POI's...

That is a display-only location sourced from Google Maps. Neither Escort Live or your detector will alert when approaching it.

If you needed police assistance in this area then it could be useful...

Thanks Jamie75, and well said Larry.

I would also recommend users not be confused between "LEO" as a common abbreviation for Law Enforcement Officer with a hotel symbol in the OP photo vs. the actual words "___ Police Department" with a police symbol as shown in the attached.
