@joshflores Welcome to RDF! This is the right place, but you first have to understand that Radar Detectors detect RADAR and not cops! No guarantee that the cops are running radar!
Much to learn here!

Most LEO's do NOT run around with their radar active. As long as you are getting the typical false alerts to K-band door openers your units are working fine.....if anything count yourself lucky they are not constantly patrolling and radaring!

Not every cop car has radar as some might think and those that do don't always have them on so don't think they aren't working they are both great detectors to own and also some cops use laser that the detector might not always pick up the only other 2 top detectors to own is the V1G2 and Redline 360c

Welcome to the forum. Many make the mistake of thinking if they see a cop, the detector should start beeping. It picks up radar that is being transmitted. Just because he's in a police car, doesn't mean he has radar running, if he has it at all. The R7 is one of the top 3 detectors on the market. If radar is being transmitted, it will alert.
Hope this helps.

@joshflores , Welcome to the Forum !! You have received some solid information above. A lot of the officers I encounter either do not have radar in their vehicle or do not have their radar on.

Stay here for a while and participate and be patient with your detector(s). As @westwind77 stated , if your detector(s) have K-band on and in highway mode, they should alert at grocery stores or department stores such as Target or Walmart with automatic K-band door openers.
