Is it true that the police keep their tires inflated to the "max pressure" stated on the sidewall?

I read on a hypermiling website that cops and taxis keep them at max sidewall pressure because it provides more hydroplaning resistance and more overall traction. They said the manufacturer recommended pressure is purely for a comfortable ride but will lead to wear on the outer edges.

I keep my tires over-inflated not for performance reasons, but because Barack Obama said I should.

If all the cop cars had overinflated tires, we wouldn't have to drill for oil in the outer shelf. Inflating your tires to max pressure also will stop global warming and peace will come to the Earth.

Sweet, and I thought I was the only one to do this.

I also weave back and forth while on the roadway while on "normal patrol" so when that hot call comes in, I know that my tires are scrubbed clean and don't have to worry about debries on them that would make me spin out when I enter that firat corner at 90mph.:p
Hells yah fella *******..
