I guess there's always a chance that a jackass is going to try and test his mettle against a cop on the track and take it out on the streets later on. Then again, jackasses are everywhere and I don't think much of them need any more of an encouragement to try and outrun the cops. Hell, most of them already have liter+ bikes.
I've hung out with a group of cops before both uniformed and not and once you have a chance to speak with them in a context outside of law you'll find that a lot of them don't take much joy in just handing out tickets. A decent chunk gets written out because the operator was being an ass.
So an event like what I suggested would allow ordinary folks to get on common ground with the cops without the fear of prosecution and just have a jolly ol' time. Few bad eggs are not a good enough excuse, to me anyway, to toss out the idea.
