I support our local constabulary. Hell, I've generously donated to them on more than one occasion during my mid-life crisis. But I think this response is unnecessary.
My impression of the 'police stalker' is entirely the opposite. I think it's a 'police protector.'
When I'm traveling somewhere and see patrol car lights ahead, I slow down and move over, if possible, to give them more room. I'm sick and tired of hearing about self-involved, inattentive drivers who plow right into a policeman/sheriff during a traffic stop.
Give these officers a break. Slow down and, if possible, move over. Give them room to do their already scary dangerous job.
Perhaps another perspective on this is it might motivate the officers to be more attentive. Pay attention to your surroundings.
I also have to wonder if there isn't a way to manage the obviousness of their presence. There are places on the interstate where everybody adjusts speed and changes lanes because they are so familiar with a patrol car being there. I certainly don't need Waze there. So what are the options re new locations or unmarked vehicles?
Personally, I don't use it. I've nearly deleted it several times already and after this discussion, I'll consider dumping it again. I thought it would give me some useful info while our interstate gets a major 5-year overhaul. It just hasn't turned out to be useful. I've ref'd to it on several of our trips, but didn't see anything I didn't already know or expect.
Finally, if the US National Sheriffs' Association is so uncomfortable with this, then do some work internally so you prevent poorly adjusted individuals from becoming officers just because they can carry a weapon and intimidate people and assert some sort of manly image for themselves. Then your public image might improve and you won't feel as persecuted as you probably feel now.
I know they go through some evals, but (IMHO, IANAL, AFAIK) several of these terrible tragedies were on the officer for not following protocol. There is room for improvement and I certainly understand the demands put upon them by society. They are extreme. But, in the final analysis, you, the US National Sheriffs' Association, is responsible for how society in general responds to your actions.
Personally, I think if someone wants to target police officers, they'll always find a way. People like that are already motivated by hate towards authority figures.
