Maka you are absolutely correct in terms of when the most wear occurs - during start up/cold starts and high rpm prior to warming the engine up.
I meant to say that the police car may only be showing 100,000 miles on the odometer but the engine may have the equivalent of 300,000 miles on it (for example) because of all the idling. I don't think they ever shut them off once their shift starts.
The best thing to do, like everybody mentions on here all the time is change the oil often and change it hot.
